Idaho Delegation Gives “Thumbs Down” To Deficit Plan

The members of Idaho’s congressional delegation say they aren’t impressed with the president’s plan to cut the federal deficit. Obama’s plan calls for, among other things, a reduction in spending in the tax code, specifically by not extending the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. Idaho senator Mike Crapo and congressman Raul says  letting those extensions expire is not the way to cut the deficit.  Both Crapo and Labrador were happy that the president was addressing what they called the “deficit crisis,” and agreed in principal to possible cuts in defense and health care spending. Congressman Mike Simpson released a statement praising Congressman Paul Ryan’s plan and criticizing the president’s plan calling it too little too late. Senator Jim Risch had similar thoughts on the president’s plan.
