Sarah Palin: Cut, Cap and Balance is 'the right plan'

"It's the spending, stupid."

Appearing on Fox News' "On The Record" Tuesday night, Gov. Sarah Palin told host Greta Van Susteren that House Speaker John Boehner didn't have to try to "re-invent any wheel" by drafting new legislation to deal with the nation's debt ceiling because the House of Representatives had already passed the Cut, Cap and Balance Act. Though the Senate voted Friday to table the measure, and it has been pronounced dead by Majority Leader Harry Reid, Gov. Palin said Cut, Cap and Balance is "the right plan," and that Republicans "don't need to retreat now." Indeed, we agree that House Republicans acted responsibly by passing Cut, Cap and Balance, and they should put the onus on Senate Democrats to either reconsider the GOP legislation or to come up with a measure of their own. The ball should be in their court, since the leader of their side in the White House hasn't so much as proposed a budget. Speaking of the president, the first woman to be the vice presidential candidate of the Republican party criticized the president for "scaring the American people" with a mostly manufactured debt ceiling crisis which she said amounted to little more than "Obama drama." She challenged conservatives to insist that Obama submit a real plan of his own.
