On September 12, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget held a press conference to urge the Super Committtee to "Go Big" and exceed its current mandate in order to put debt on a downward path as a share of the economy. The press conference featured remarks from co-chairs Alan Simpson and Erkine Bowles of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform and from CRFB president Maya MacGuineas.

At the event, a letter co-signed by over business leaders and policy experts was released, urging the Super Committee to take bold action.
