Washington, D.C. – In response to the introduction of the Fiscal Stability Act, introduced by U.S. Senators Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Joe Manchin (D-WV), Adam Brandon, president of FreedomWorks, commented:
“It is time for lawmakers on Capitol Hill to take our nation’s fiscal problems seriously, and I am encouraged to see both chambers introduce legislation that would implement a bipartisan commission to address fiscal reform. This is a first step in the right direction; however, both Democrats and Republicans must commit to major fiscal reforms. Bipartisanship is the only way any fiscal reforms will have credibility with the American public.
“American voters, specifically independent millennial voters, are tired of paying into entitlement programs they believe they will never benefit from, and they are concerned that the older generation will leave behind a $50 trillion national debt, in just a few years, for them to deal with. Congress has a responsibility to preserve economic opportunity and prosperity for our children and grandchildren while also protecting current beneficiaries who depend on these programs and ensuring their financial stability going forward.”
