by Daniel Foster

Fiscal Commission members Rep. Dave Camp (R., Mich.), Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.), and Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R., Texas) have issued a joint statement on the co-chairs’ proposal:  

“We appreciate the leadership of Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles on the Fiscal Commission, and their shared commitment to addressing our pressing fiscal challenges.  This is a provocative proposal, and while we have concerns with some of their specifics, we commend the co-chairs for advancing the debate.  We will continue to work toward solutions that help spur economic growth and restrain the explosive growth of government spending.”
