WASHINGTON, May 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Congressional leaders should appoint budget conferees in order to work out the differences between the House- and Senate-passed budget proposals, or commit to a separate process to begin serious negotiations on reforming entitlements and our tax code in order to put the debt on a sustainable path. Members from both political parties and both chambers, and the President, need to commit themselves to working together on a budget deal now instead of waiting until the last minute for another debt limit crisis to compel them to act.

"By inducing Congress and the White House to come to an agreement, action-forcing moments prevent our elected leaders from continuing to kick the can down the road. However, what should be making Washington act is the desire to avoid another last-minute debt ceiling showdown and the imperative to reduce the debt burden we hand to future generations, not the actual debt ceiling deadline itself. As such, serious budget negotiations should begin immediately."
