Appearing on CBS’ “Face the Nation” today, Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL) said he would like to see the bipartisan “gang of six” deficit reduction proposal attached to any increase in the debt limit, according to POLITICO.
"I think the best play here is to have the bipartisan deficit commission report of the Gang of Six attached to the debt limit extension," Kirk said. "That would be huge cuts in the future spending of the United States that may be a good deal. Without that we should not send a blank check to the administration."
The “gang” includes Senators Mark Warner (D-VA), Kent Conrad (D-ND), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), Mike Crapo (R-ID) and Tom Coburn (R-OK).
