WASHINGTON, May 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement from Maya MacGuineas, President of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget and head of the Campaign to Fix the Debt:

"More Members of Congress are finally getting the message that fixing our fiscal mess requires bipartisanship and working together. Yesterday, Senator Max Baucus, chair of the Senate Finance Committee, and Congressman Dave Camp, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, who have demonstrated a bi-partisan partnership for some time, launched their joint initiative for tax reform. 'Max and Dave' have made it clear: Congress is listening to the more than 350,000 citizens who are calling for a bipartisan solution to our debt. 

"We are on our way to Fixing the Debt, but there's still more work to do.  We are hopeful that Max and Dave will put forth a comprehensive tax reform plan that will broaden the base, lower the rates, reduce the deficit, and grow the economy.  Millions of Americans and small businesses will benefit from comprehensive tax reform and we encourage them to raise their voice in the dialogue opened by these Congressional Leaders."
