Senator Gregg says will back deficit-reduction plan

WASHINGTON (BestGrowthStock) – Republican Senator Judd Gregg said on Wednesday he would support a revised plan to balance the U.S. budget, becoming the first lawmaker on a presidential commission to publicly support the controversial proposal.

“While I do not agree with all parts of the co-chairmen’s final proposal, I will support it because it represents a step forward that we urgently need,” Gregg said in a statement.
