Indiana governor and budget hawk Mitch Daniels, who dubbed debt "the new red menace" during his CPAC speech this year, supports the Boehner plan:

“I hope the Indiana Congressional Delegation will support Speaker Boehner’s proposal. The terrifying, nation-threatening debt levels caused by past and present overspending and future overpromising will not be solved by any one action or in any one year. But the Boehner plan begins in the right place, with real spending restraint and would show Americans and world markets that we do not intend to commit financial suicide.  I hope Congress passes it and then begins work immediately on step two of our long march back to national solvency and economic prosperity.”
