DCCC Fact Check: the Boehner plan would cost more than 700,000 jobs

Today on Fox News Sunday, House Speaker John Boehner said he would seek a budget deal "in the framework of Cut, Cap and Balance" and Boehner recently called himself a "happy warrior" for the controversial plan.

In reality, this plan would cost more than 700,000 Americans their job and end Medicare for seniors.

Representative Jim Jordan, the Chairman of the 175 Members Republican Study Committee, said this scheme “basically mirrors the budget proposal that the House passed this year” - ending Medicare in order to protect taxpayer giveaways for Big Oil companies and tax breaks for millionaires.

From polls to town hall meetings, that plan was widely rejected by the American people. The non-partisan Center on Budget and Policy Priorities wrote that “Cut, Cap and end Medicare” is an “ideologically extreme” plan that “would inexorably subject Social Security and Medicare to deep reduction.”
