Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget

New York Times' David Leonhardt on The Colbert Report

Aug 3, 2011 | Budget Process

Last night on The Colbert Report, David Leonhardt of The New York Times talked about the debt deal recently signed into law and why it's not enough to restore our nation's fiscal health or save our credit rating.

Host Stephen Colbert also had some interesting comments about the deal -- we particularly enjoyed his observation that "we made the hard choice to make the hard cuts later".
