Bozell: Boehner Must Work With McConnell to Restore Fiscal Sanity

December 21, 2012 3:03 pm

Bozell: “If the GOP leadership is unwilling to produce a fiscally conservative, pro-growth solution, the GOP membership should find new leadership.”

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – ForAmerica Chairman L. Brent Bozell III today released the following statement on the state of negotiations over the fiscal cliff:

“Now that Speaker Boehner’s Plan B has been rejected, it’s up to the GOP to get serious and offer a serious solution. Speaker Boehner, working in conjunction with Senate Minority Leader McConnell, should craft legislation that gets us on the road to fiscal sanity. This agenda must include four key items: cutting the corporate tax rate, abolishing the immoral “death tax,” real spending cuts, and serious entitlement reforms. Bring a united GOP front and challenge the President to support this legislation. Offer him the “millionaire tax” if he will. If he doesn’t accept this, it proves he’s not serious. At that point the GOP should walk away, declaring it’s the President who now owns the impending disaster. Conversely, if the GOP leadership is unwilling to produce a fiscally conservative, pro-growth solution, the GOP membership should find new leadership.”
