GOP hopeful Kasich to detail sweeping balanced-budget plan

PLYMOUTH, N.H. (AP) – Republican John Kasich says he will balance the federal budget within eight years if he’s elected president.

It’s part of a sweeping domestic agenda Kasich is unveiling Thursday. The Ohio governor’s plan includes tax cuts for businesses and the wealthy, a big boost in military spending and the end of the federal role in handing out education and transportation dollars.

The policy rollout comes as Kasich fights to stand out in the packed Republican presidential field.
Kasich’s campaign predicts that economic growth sparked by the tax cuts – backed by an eight-year freeze on non-defense spending – would eventually balance the federal budget for the first time since Bill Clinton was president.
