I’ve been trying to help the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. I’ve spent some time with Erskine Bowles, and I have a lot of respect for Erskine Bowles, who is a Democrat. I’m also seeing some Republican senators and try to stay in touch with the Congress. So don’t misread my interest in this topic. If you ask me what’s the most fundamental issue for America’s economy and its place in the world, it’s getting this solved in a proper way. So if I can help, that’s what I’m trying to do. What I’ve found with some congressional or business groups is that what I can bring to bear is a little bit of a sense of how this affects America’s international position and a little bit of sense of what I see happening in the rest of the world. I’m not trying to endorse one form or another. I just think we need to push the system towards a solution.
