Clarifying The Campaign to Fix the Debt’s Position

The following is a statement from Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget and head of the Campaign to Fix the Debt:

“The country must put a bipartisan deficit reduction plan in place that is big enough to stabilize the debt and put it on a downward path.  In order to do this, any plan should include structural entitlement reforms and real revenue.

The Campaign to Fix the Debt does not have a position on raising tax rates.”
