Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget

Fiscal Commission Votes This Morning

Dec 3, 2010 | Budgets & Projections

Update: 11 out of the commission's 18 members voted to approve of the final proposal. See our release here.

The report is titled “The Moment of Truth” and that is a fitting theme for today’s vote by members of the President’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform on its proposal. It appears as though the plan will get at least 11 votes, a clear bipartisan majority of the panel’s 18 members, but less than the 14 needed to require Congress to consider it. The vote is beginning now. Watch it live here.
