DETROIT (WWJ) – Congressman John Dingell is open to suggestions.
A group of Ann Arbor residents will participate in a federal budget deficit exercise Monday evening, discussing how they would handle the issue if they had the power to do so.
The exercise is the work of “The Concord Coalition,” a non-partisan group which says it’s dedicated to exercising fiscal responsibility.
Dingell said he will supervise the meeting, and might bring some of the suggestions to Capitol Hill.
“Most Americans are very decent about this and they want the best for this country,” he said. “They are trying to see to it that these informed decisions are made.”
He said solving the issue will be no small task.
“This problem is not an easy one,” Dingell said. “We all have to work on resolving perhaps one of the most enormously complex problems in the history of mankind.”
In the end, Dingell said he hopes the exercise will teach participants to make informed governmental decisions.
