Huntsman: I've got a solution to the budget crisisFormer Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman has a plan to halt the never-ending budget impasse with Congress and he's going to be pitching it on a TV near you.Huntsman, who is co-chairman of the post-partisan No Labels group, will appear in ads in the "coming weeks" touting a proposal to put bidget battles on hold until the economy has recovered and is growing.The "Jobs First" plan would freeze spending and taxes at current levels until the national unemployment rate drops to 6.5 percent. The move also includes suspending the debt ceiling - the nation's credit limit - until that point as well."For too long, we've lurched from crisis to self-inflicted crisis," Huntsman said in a No Labels release. "Businesses can't operate under this constant cloud of uncertainty, and neither can the American people. No Labels' Jobs First plan is the first serious attempt to create a climate of certainty and allow sanity and common sense to prevail."
