Republicans Wednesday proposed freezing federal pay, cutting the federal workforce and cutting some benefits to millionaires, as they unveiled their plan to pay for a temporary 2012 cut in Social Security payroll taxes.
The proposal includes:
--A three year pay freeze on federal workers and Pentagon civilians.
--A 10 percent cut in the federal workforce, a reduction of 200,000 positions.
--A curb on benefits such as food stamps and unemployment compensation for millionaires and billionaires.
--Making it easy for millionaires and billionaires to voluntarily pay more tax.
--No new taxes on job creators.
