The White House rejects the plan: “The Republican letter released today does not meet the test of balance. In fact, it actually promises to lower rates for the wealthy and sticks the middle class with the bill.

The plan also enacts an array of mandatory and discretionary spending cuts: $600 billion in health savings, including raising the Medicare eligibility age from 65 to 67.
