Boehner says revised debt plan yields greater cuts

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner’s office said on Wednesday that its revised plan to raise the U.S. debt ceiling would deliver about $65 billion more in cuts over a 10-year period than an earlier version.

Boehner’s office said its new plan would deliver $917 billion over 10 years, which meets its criteria that any debt-ceiling increase must be matched with a greater dollar figure in spending cuts. The plan would raise the debt ceiling by up to $900 billion.
