Graham Pleased with Boehner Plan Revisions

by Robert Costa

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) tells NRO that he is pleased with the revised Boehner plan. “With the balanced-budget amendment, it is certainly more in line with what I’m trying to support,” he says. “It’s a clear improvement.”

“John is trying to find the sweet spot. I don’t know if he has found it or not, but he has a tough job,” Graham says. “I hope the country realizes he is doing this all by himself.”

Graham met with South Carolina’s GOP House delegation earlier today. That bloc has reportedly been tough to sway in the final hours. “They are not a ‘create chaos’ crowd,” he says. “They like Boehner and want to help him. But they have got to feel like they got real change.”
