Letter to Members of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction

Today, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) released the following letter being sent to members of the Super Committee charged with producing legislation to reduce the national debt.

Dear Members of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction:

As members concerned about the fiscal health and future of our country, we ask that any legislation introduced by the Joint Select Committee on Deficit reduction meet the following criteria:

* Balance our budget within 10 years;
* Place entitlements on a path to fiscal solvency;
* Comprehensive tax reform that lowers rates and promotes economic growth, with no net tax increase;
* Avoid a further downgrade of our credit rating.

Thank you for your work on this matter, and we look forward to seeing your bill.
