I've looked for the plan but can't find it. Has Boehner's plan been made public so that interested citizens can read it before it is voted on today?
Of course not. That would ruin the surprise.
I tried to find it as well. All you can find are outsiders giving very vague numbers that seem to be changing all the time. This smells of the ol' Pelosi concept that we won't know what is in it till it passes.
Why should the serfs read it when the lords can’t be bothered to do so before the vote?
Yes, you can read it anywhere you see a blank white flag.
BREAKING: Independent CBO Confirms Spending Cuts Exceed Debt Limit Hike in Revised GOP Plan; Bill Now Includes $22 Billion in Deficit Reduction in First Year
Posted by Speaker Boehner's Press Office on July 27, 2011
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has released its analysis of the revised Budget Control Act of 2011 today, and CBOs analysis confirms that the spending cuts are greater than the debt hike affirming that the House GOP bill meets the critical test House Republicans have said they will insist upon for any bill to raise the nations debt ceiling. Specifically, the CBO analysis confirms the Republican plan will:
Republicans adjusted their spending cut bill after a lower-than-expected score from CBO. This updated analysis confirms what others are saying: the Republican plan changes the trajectory of spending and would keep the debt cutting process going. Unlike Senator Reids gimmick-filled plan, the Republican proposal includes real spending cuts and reforms that will restrain future spending and the spending cuts are larger than the debt limit increase.
This bill is far from perfect, but its a positive step forward that denies President the $2.4 trillion blank check that lets him continue his spending binge through the next election. Learn more about it here.Also: New analysis by the House Budget Committee shows the GOP Budget Control Act achieves roughly 66 percent of the discretionary spending cuts in the House-passed budget. The GOP bill cuts and caps spending by $917 billion over 10 years $22 billion in FY2012 alone and will prevent a national default that would hurt private-sector job growth. It also keeps the focus on cutting spending, requiring a plan by December that cuts at least $1.8 trillion more. See the chart below from the Budget Committee:

Did you bother try find obama’s plan and if you did and found it, how about posting it here.
All I see there are summaries and analyses. Where can I read the actual bill.
More info here:
Weak, weak, weak. Kick the can some more.
They will need to pass it to find out what is in it.
That’s a summary - not the actual bill.
I understand that; I’m looking for it.
I’m reading it now in my hobbit hole.
We will ensure that bills are debated and discussed in the public square by publishing the text online for at least three days before coming up for a vote in the House of Representatives. No more hiding legislative language from the minority party, opponents, and the public. Legislation should be understood by all interested parties before it is voted on.
At this point all I am concerned about is that they keep the bammy from having a campaign tool with which to demagogue the issue. We aren’t going to get anything done as long as we are only 1/3 of the government. Please work hard next year to elect GOP Senators. Don’t get too focused on the presidential race and let the Senate and House fall. We have all got to get away from our computers and work hard to save our country. It may be our last chance.
