fix the debt

Steve Carmody/Michigan Radio

A coalition of Michigan business and political leaders is calling on Congress to deal with the nation’s financial problems now and not put off making difficult decisions.

The group is called Fix the Debt.    It's urging federal elected officials to reach a deal to avoid triggering automatic tax increases and spending cuts known as the ‘Fiscal Cliff’.

The group also says now is the time to make difficult decisions to reduce the national debt.
