Concord Coalition Report Shows Eagerness for Reform, Readiness to Make Tough Choices on Fiscal Priorities
Date:12/7/2009

WASHINGTON, Dec. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hoping to protect their children and grandchildren from a dismal economic future, concerned citizens across the country are prepared to make the difficult choices necessary to put government finances on a more responsible path.

This becomes clear in a report released today by The Concord Coalition on the first year of its Fiscal Stewardship Project. Supported by a grant from the Peter G.

The fiscal advisory councils were formed in Atlanta, Iowa, Milwaukee, Northern California, Northern Virginia and Philadelphia. In addition, a special student engagement project was conducted in Denver.

"Politicians may be surprised at how emphatic ordinary citizens are about fiscal responsibility and what solutions they are prepared to consider once they have studied the issues," said Robert L. Bixby, executive director of The Concord Coalition. "The work of the fiscal advisory councils should demonstrate to elected officials that their constituents are ready and willing to help make the hard choices that good fiscal stewardship requires now and for future generations."

Concord's report includes an overview followed by individual reports from each of the advisory councils that present their findings and recommendations on everything from new taxes to reductions in entitlement benefits.

While each fiscal advisory council approached its work differently, eight central themes emerged:

  • Disappointment and frustration with Washington
  • A preference for broad, sweeping reforms rather than piecemeal efforts
  • A sense of urgency
  • The essential need for improvements in the health care system
  • A willingness to consider significant changes i
