While negotiations are ongoing to resolve the looming fiscal cliff budget crisis, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney called the GOP plan “magic beans and fairy dust.”
One reporter asked how there could be good government when Speaker of the House John Boehner puts a plan on the table and the White House calls it ridiculous. “Where’s the leadership,” he asked.
“He put a couple of sentences on, that’s not a plan,” answered Carney.
Carney says the GOP plan is lacking specificity. “We don’t know who pays. We don’t know what we’re talking about in terms of actual legislation to increase revenues,” he said.
When questioned about the “magic beans and fairy dust” comment, Carney backtracked saying there was more detail on spending cuts than on increasing revenue.
