Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) on Tax Cuts: The Dangers of Partisanship

Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) on Addressing the Nation's Fiscal Crisis: There is a way out of this but political gimmicks and partisan games can push us off the cliff. On July 16, 2012, the Budgeting for National Priorities project at Brookings hosted Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash.), member of the Senate Budget Committee, former chair of the bipartisan Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction and a member of Senate Democratic leadership, for a conversation on the upcoming fiscal cliff, how she views the path to a balanced and bipartisan approach to avoiding it, and what steps she believes can be taken on the expiring Bush tax cuts and the scheduled sequestration. Following Senator Murray's keynote address, a panel of Brookings experts reflected on the current budget situation and prospects for a "grand bargain" to rein in the deficit and spur economic growth.
