New Budgetary Agreement

“New Budgetary Agreement Suggested”

Former White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles has warned members of the Supercommittee they will - fail the country - if they do not break the impasse over taxes that is blocking a far-reaching budgetary agreement. Bowles has offered an alternative plan that would split the difference between the competing debt-reduction proposals each side offered last week. He challenged Democrats to accept deeper cuts to federal health programs and Republicans to embrace 800-billion dollars in new taxes.

Bowles says when - added to previous budget cuts, such a deal would slice 3.9-trillion dollars from projected borrowing over the next decade, stabilize the debt as a percentage of the economy, and avert a – disastrous - failure of leadership that would undermine the nation’s global standing.
