WASHINGTON -- Robert Bixby,
Executive Director of The Concord Coalition, will testify Thursday before the
Senate Special Committee on Aging. His testimony will more deeply explore the
principles articulated by the bipartisan leaders of The Concord Coalition in the
January 9 full-page New York Times statement which urged Congress and the
President to “confront the hard choices that a meaningful Social Security reform
plan requires” and to “reject both the ‘do nothing' approach and the ‘free
lunch' plans that rely on substantial long-term borrowing to appear painless.”
That statement was signed by Concord Coalition Co-Chairs, Warren B. Rudman and Bob Kerrey; Concord President, Peter G. Peterson; and Members of The Concord Coalition Board of Directors, Sam Nunn, Paul Volcker, Robert Rubin, Charles A. Bowsher, and Donald B. Marron.
The full text of Mr. Bixby's testimony will be available Thursday at www.concordcoalition.org under “What's New.”
The Concord Coalition is a nonpartisan, grass roots organization dedicated to balanced federal budgets and generationally responsible fiscal policy.
