Rep. Suzan DelBene (D, WA-01) is inviting constituents to workshops, in Mount Vernon and Bothell, on deficit reduction. The workshops are presented in conjunction with the “bipartisan” Concord Coalition, whose mission is to educate “the public about the causes and consequences of federal budget deficits, the long-term challenges facing America’s unsustainable entitlement programs, and how to build a sound foundation for economic growth.” (source) That’s not the sort of language a Democrat should be using.
The homepage of the Concord Coalition has an article in favor of the Simpson-Bowles deficit reduction plan that is anathema to progressives.
I’ve copied the invitation below, from here:
