For several months I have served on the Utah steering committee of the Campaign to Fix the Debt (www.fixthedebt.org), a national bipartisan group founded to encourage Congress to put our country on a fiscally sustainable path. Utah's committee chaired by Scott Anderson and Kem Gardner is a remarkable group of community leaders from both parties.
Last week, I attended a small Fix the Debt meeting with Rep. Jason Chaffetz. My Democratic counterpart was state Sen. Jim Dabakis, chair of the Utah Democratic Party.
I wish that meeting could have been televised. Had it been, my fellow citizens who have become jaded and cynical about our politics might have found new hope.
