Text  



Grover’s in:

“Here’s the big picture: No tax increase. Real spending cuts. Cuts first and debt ceiling second. This plan is good for taxpayers, children and other living things.”

Rep. Jim Jordan is out:

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who stood — visibly uncomfortable — next to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) during Monday’s announcement of the plan, released a statement saying he would vote “no” on the measure.

“While I thank the Speaker for fighting for Republican principles, I cannot support the plan that was presented to House Republicans this afternoon,” Jordan said.Conservative lawmakers Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) also came out against Boehner’s plan.
