Fix The Debt Coalition Grows

The Fix the Debt folks have added another group to its coalition: the Committee for Economic Development.

This week, members of the coalition are meeting with House Republican leaders such as John Boehner and Kevin McCarthy and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi this week.

CED says the move is “an example of business leaders joining the campaign not to push the agenda of one political party,” according to a statement from the group.

“The business community is calling for compromise that leads to concrete steps that will reduce uncertainty and set our economy on a long-term path of sustained and robust growth,” CED’s incoming CEO Steve Odland said in a statement. Odland is the former CEO of Office Depot and AutoZone.

Meanwhile, Republicans have been complaining that too much of the discussion around averting the cliff has been focused on tax reform rather than entitlement reform.
