I’m wondering how many trillions of dollars we’ll add to the nation’s debt before anybody listens to Democrat Erskine Bowles and his com padre former U.S. Sen. Alan Simpson.
So far, since launching the Simpson-Bowles plan in December 2010, we’ve added $3 trillion.
Our latest brush against the debt ceiling now has Republicans and Democrats in Congress kicking the proverbial can down the road. This week, they agreed to deal with it … later.
When I ran into Mr. Bowles last week, he said he was mad and frustrated, but is not giving up the fight no matter how futile it seems at times.
