A group that campaigns against federal deficits is resurrecting its effort in Iowa, where Democrats will hold the first test of the next Presidential campaign. Corey Davison of the Concord Coalition says his group will hold forums in Sioux City and Sioux Center within the next couple of months.He says the time is always right to talk about the best way for Congress to manage our tax dollars. And he says since the last presidential campaign, we’ve gone from a five-point-six trillion dollar surplus to budget deficits. Davison says they want to see a return to the time of no deficits.He says budget restraint and fiscal responability have to be part of the equation to reach that goal. Davison says Concord Coalition members in Iowa will be urged to put the tough questions to the presidential candidates.He says members range from independent democrats and republicans, and he says they’ll hopefully be asking the candidates how they will manage the budget during the economic slow down and the fight against terrorism. Davison says his group wants changes in President Bush’s stimulus plan because it doesn’t do enough to boost the economy short-term and he says in the long-term, it creates too much red ink in the federal budget.
