Lancaster, Kissell join Fix the Debt effort

Former Democratic Congressmen Martin Lancaster and Larry Kissell are lending their names to the Fix the Debt campaign that is seeking to pressure Congress to take major steps to overhaul programs such as Social Security and Medicare and other entitlements to address the question of the national debt.

“We are honored to have former Representatives Lancaster and Kissell join our campaign for a strong economy,'' said Bob Ingram, the co-chair of the state Fix the Debt campaign.

The campaign is being financed by former Wall Street executive Pete Peterson and is being headed by former UNC President Erskine Bowles and former Sen. Alan Simpson.

More than 11,195 North Carolinians have signed the group's petition.

Lancaster and Kissell among 100 former members of Congress who were named to the Congressional Fiscal Leadership Council, a branch of the Fix the Debt campaign.
