Warren Rudman & Concord Coalition Welcomes Plan by “Gang of Sense”
July 25, 2011
Senator Warren Rudman, Chair of Albright Stonebridge Group, today issued a statement along with several former members of Congress who serve on The Concord Coalition’s Board of Directors urging elected officials to raise the debt limit and embrace the broad deficit-reduction plan released this week by the Senate’s bipartisan “Gang of Six.”
“The Gang of Six proposal serves as a beacon for those who wish to support meaningful bipartisan solutions,” the board members said in a prepared statement. “It confronts the inevitable trade-offs that must be made and defies those who insist that compromise is a fool’s errand. . . . With this proposal, the Gang of Six has become the Gang of Sense. This is one gang we urge others to join.”
The statement was issued by Concord’s co-chairmen – former Senators Warren B. Rudman and Bob Kerrey – along with former Senators Evan Bayh III, Judd Gregg, Sam Nunn, and Chuck Robb, and former Representatives J. Alex McMillan, Timothy J. Penny, John Tanner and Charlie Stenholm.
