A group of Missouri’s most prominent current and former politicians, a mix of Republicans and Democrats, have joined a national bipartisan organization aimed at finding a long-term resolution to the “fiscal cliff.”
Leaders of the Fix the Debt Campaign in Missouri include Treasurer Clint Zweifel, Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, former U.S. Sen. Kit Bond and former Gov. Bob Holden. Bond sees tackling the federal debt as the best way to ignite “growth in the economy” and prevent the stifling of small business.
Holden said addressing the debt is necessary so that there’s adequate public money to improve public education and pay for needed bridges and infrastructure.
