Hennessey on the Boehner Plan
2:01 PM, Jul 28, 2011 • By DANIEL HALPER
Economist Keith Hennessey, who has been writing extensively on the debt ceiling negotiations, writes, "I support the Boehner bill and hope House Republicans will vote to pass it." Here's Hennessey's reasoning:
Hennessey acknowledges (and even principally agrees) with a lot of the conservative criticism that's been directed toward Boehner's plan. But "those conservatives who oppose the Boehner bill," Hennessey writes, "don’t have a viable strategy to enact such an improved bill....I think it is a mistake to oppose a bill that improves on current law if you don’t have both a better policy and a strategy to achieve it."
Whole thing here.
