Tom Coburn back to Gang of Six
After walking out in May, Tom Coburn rejoined the “Gang of Six” for budget talks.
Here’s what it looks like over there according to Jamie Dupree:
* Slash our nationâ€™s deficits by $3.7 trillion/$3.6 trillion over ten years under CBOâ€™s March 2011 baseline, or $4.65 trillion/$4.5 trillion under the original fiscal commission baseline (which used the Presidentâ€™s 2011 budget request as the starting point for discretionary spending).
* Stabilize our publicly-held debt by 2014.
* Reduce our publicly-held debt to roughly 70% of our economy by 2021.
* Impose unprecedented budget enforcement.
