McConnell Lends Support for "Go Big"

Nov 4, 2011

According to The Hill, Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has signaled to Senate colleagues that he would be willing to support a $4 trillion plan. That sounds like a call for “Go Big” to us! This is a favorable change, given that earlier this week it was reported that he had favored a smaller $1.2 trillion package in savings.

McConnell’s support for “Go Big” joins the growing chorus of lawmakers, including the 100 House members this week and 45 Senators, who are already pushing for a big solution to our debt challenges.

Now with McConnell, hundreds of other lawmakers, hundreds of business leaders and associations, and many other experts pushing for comprehensive reform, we hope the Super Committee heeds the Go Big message!
