Right now congress is looking over a new plan from the formerly defunct Gang of Six. The gang had been working on budget issues steadily for months until Representative Tom Coburn of Oklahoma backed out saying the democrats weren’t willing to make major compromises. Now Coburn’s back and the gang is putting a plan on the table. What’s in it? Who likes it? And where do we go from here? Is the debt ceiling debate finally over?
