WASHINGTON -- With voters going to the polls for their state's primary election in the coming weeks, The Concord Coalition reminds the presidential candidates that -- regardless of party affiliation or ideology -- the rising national debt will affect the feasibility of their policy proposals.
“The debt is your running mate,” say Concord Co-Chairs Bob Kerrey (D-Neb.) and Jack Danforth (R-Missouri) former U.S. senators, and John Tanner (D-Tenn.) and Mike Castle (R-Del.), former U.S. House of Representatives members.
Their full statement:
WASHINGTON -- With the federal budget deficit on the rise again and the nation’s debt still on an unsustainable long-term path, The Concord Coalition today released this year’s version of its “Key Questions” that voters should ask candidates for federal office.

WASHINGTON -- A new assessment of 2016 presidential candidates by First Budget, a joint initiative of the Campaign to Fix the Debt and The Concord Coalition, finds that while all candidates in both parties say the rapidly growing national debt is a problem, most of their proposals to address it fall far short.
