Reduction Plan Of Fresh Debt - House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer


Hoyer promises a new impetus to the deficit.

JONATHAN WEISMAN ranking Democrat in the House said Monday that a bipartisan group of lawmakers on both sides of the Capitol was preparing to start another effort to reach a “grand bargain” on deficit reduction – and the fruit of negotiations could emerge in the next week.

Addressing the centrist group Third Way, Representative Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland, the Democratic whip, sought to bury the widespread belief that any agreement on taxes and deficits will have to wait until after the November election.

“Contrary to what some people think, we can not afford to set this work aside, “said Hoyer, according to the text of his prepared speech. “I’m here to give urgency to the pursuit of an agreement now to ensure fiscal sustainability in the long term,”

Aids Congress confirmed that the so-called Gang of Six in the Senate – now up to eight – gathered again and tries to move a bipartisan plan to reduce the deficit from a general framework for the detailed legislative language.

Harry Reid of Nevada, the majority leader in the Senate, said the group. It will not move forward until it sees real language and real results. Mais promises Hoyer will meet Washington, skeptical after so many failed efforts, including the deficit reduction commission President Obama.

Led by Erskine Bowles and Alan B. K. Simpson, direct talks between the president and Speaker John A. Boehner, split between Vice President Joseph R. negotiations Biden Jr. and the majority leader in the House, Eric Cantor, and finally the so-called “super committee” formed in the wake of last year’s near default.

An employee involved in the debt talks said events outside could push the issue back into the spotlight before the November election. An outbreak of the debt crisis in Europe and a resolution of this crisis could distract bond traders for the deficit United States.

The federal government could approach the legal limit at the loan earlier than expected. The pressure could grow to stop over billion in automatic, across-the-board cuts to defense programs and non-defense, called “sequester” or extend the tax cuts of President George W. Bush in 2001 and 2003 January 1, or the White House could shift his attention to a lot of decisions before the election day.

“Conventional wisdom in Washington is that our window to reach a solution after the election during a lame duck session,” said Mr. Hoyer. “By then, we will know the shape of the 113th Congress, feeling the pressure of the sequestration looming, and once more to face the end of the ’01 and ’03 tax cuts.

People, including many in this room – see point leverage for progress, but the necessary steps to reach a solution requires bipartisan support and shared responsibility for difficult decisions that must be made.   Mr. Hoyer said “work on a quiet agreement was underway and a legislative package should be ready by House Republicans make their own budget plan at the end of March”.
