Support for Senate
AND FOX NEWS LIKES IT!?
Seems reasonable to me. That is if they stick to everything they are saying.
Reasonable but not enough. It only cuts roughly 370 Billion a year over 10 years. The Deficit annually is 5 times that much right now. More needs to be done. Good First step though.
Unfortunately when it comes to cutting gov't, the first step is usually the last.
the govt has already started cutting govt expendatures.
It sounds like the Senate has signed on with this plan. Now, will the house freshmen go with it?
Granny says dey should repeal the Bush tax cuts for the rich folks dat own the companies dat outsource American jobs to Mexico an' Asia...
Would 'Gang of Six' hike taxes or cut 'em?
July 20, 2011: The Gang of Six wants to reform the tax code, something fiscal experts have been recommending for years. A better tax code is good for the economy and can help rein in debt. But taxes are a lightening rod.

I think it works and can get the US out of this current stall, but saying that Fox likes it,
Why not cut half of our military funding, I bet that would save bundles!
This better die in the House.
It does look good too good to be passed, unfortunately.
It raises taxes without raising taxes and provides cuts to entitlements without cutting entitlements.
And it will provide real deficit reduction.
It makes sense, hence it must fail. Such is Beltway Logic.
