The bipartisan “Gang of Six” in the Senate was formed with dreams of drafting a comprehensive deficit-reduction package that could pass the Senate and House. But those hopes waned when Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., dropped out of the gang, and the spotlight shifted to another group of six, led by Vice President Joe Biden. Biden’s group combines members of both parties and both chambers, but has a more focused mission: cutting enough to pass a rise in the debt ceiling by August 2. But now that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., has jumped ship, Biden's group looks less promising. In this gallery, we take a look at Biden's group as well as the original "gang of six."
