Johanns Compares Fiscal Cliff Plans Looking at these two plans, it is easy to see the differences. While both would create comparable savings, $2.2 trillion over the next decade in Speaker Boehner's plan and $2 trillion in President Obama's, they go about creating these savings in drastically different ways. President Obama's plan would deal with our fiscal situation by increasing tax rates rather than shrinking government spending. Speaker Boehner's plan would cut government spending and generate new revenue from eliminating deductions and loopholes in the tax code. There remains much work to do on this issue. And while I will continue to work with my colleagues to reach a solution before the end of the year, I'd like to hear your thoughts and ideas on the fiscal cliff.

Senator Johanns e-Update
December 6, 2012

The Obama Administration and House Speaker John Boehner have both laid out their plans to avert the upcoming fiscal cliff. With two proposals on the table, I think now is an important time to look beyond the political rhetoric that often gets played out in the media, and instead examine the facts. I invite you to Click  or on the picture below to watch a short video comparing these two proposals.
