Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Bruce Braley (IA-01) released the following statement regarding the ‘Gang of Six’ deficit reduction plan:
“As details emerge, I’m very pleased to see that thoughtful, bipartisan discussions have resulted in a compromise that could address our nation's deficit and keep the very real risk of default at bay. While many politicians in Washington have done their best to claim that default is not a real possibility – others have sat down, rolled up their sleeves and worked together to ensure our nation does not default on our obligations. This proposal will provide immediate deficit reduction, finally fix a broken payment system for Iowa's doctors, and abolish the Alternative Minimum Tax, which unfairly penalizes middle class families.
I look forward to analyzing this proposal and moving the country away from default, and back on track towards economic recovery.”
