U.S. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick’s bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus announced its endorsement of a debt ceiling framework comprised of steps to avoid defaulting on the national debt and advancing a sustainable budget.
“The debt ceiling and debt crisis demand a two-party solution,” said Fitzpatrick, Problem Solvers Caucus co-chairman. “We must never allow our nation to default on our debt, we must never put our nation’s full faith and credit at risk, and we must insist on responsible budget reform measures. I am proud of our Caucus’ tireless work to find common ground on this bipartisan framework, which is the first of multiple steps in this process. I hope that our colleagues on both sides will join us in this mission.”
The caucus is also co-chaired by Democratic Rep. Josh Gottheimer.
Reps. Ed Case, a Democrat, and Don Bacon, a Republican, co-led the Debt and Deficit Working Group.
