Krauthammer: Plan B is ‘Not a Deal,’ It’s ‘a Parachute’

Charles Krauthammer explained on Special Report tonight what’s behind Boehner’s actions: “So Boehner has nothing on spending. I think this is not a deal he’s working out with the Plan B, it’s a parachute. It’s the one thing he can pass in which Republicans escape the blame for the cliff. I wouldn’t have started with conceding on rates, but once Republicans have conceded on rates, do it exactly where Boehner is suggesting. Pass it, and get out of town.”
