Statement from Foundation President, Michael A. Peterson, on CBO's August Update
By: Michael A. Peterson
August 22, 2012
"Today's CBO report is yet another warning to our elected leaders that they must take action to address the nation's fiscal challenges, including the upcoming fiscal cliff. What we desperately need is a bipartisan solution to the nation's long-term fiscal problems that can be agreed upon now, and implemented gradually over time. A sustainable long-term fiscal plan for America would boost confidence in the economy in the short-term — aiding the recovery and providing businesses with the certainty they need to plan for the future and invest — and also put the nation on a better economic path for the long term."
