WASHINGTON, DC - House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after Speaker Pelosi announced the House Democratic appointees to President Obama’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform:
“Speaker Pelosi has appointed three Members of Congress representing the diverse perspectives of the Democratic Caucus to the President's vital, bipartisan fiscal commission. Reps. Spratt, Becerra, and Schakowsky all understand the daunting budget challenges America faces, as well as the impact mounting debt will have on working families. I hope that all members of the commission will come to the table ready to negotiate fiscal discipline measures, on both the spending and revenues side, without preconditions. Congress must act on the commission's recommendations at the end of the year.”
