John Boehner, like his colleagues, is calling for deep evisceration in social-spending and ‘entitlements.’ (Whether Americans are ‘entitled’ to it, or whether it’s a genuine responsibility of good governance not incumbent on its recipients, is a whole other, worthwhile, semantic argument.) But there’s really only one sentence in this article that matters:

“Mr. Boehner made it clear the Republicans are not themselves offering a detailed plan anytime soon. Rather, the budget is likely to contain cost containment goals, but no specific ideas on how to achieve them.”
