For all the partisan gridlock in Washington, it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel with the upcoming “fiscal cliff.”
But former Sen. Alan Simpson (R-WY) is trying to highlight the seriousness of going over the cliff by injecting a little humor into the situation.
Simpson co-chaired the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform in 2010. The commission also included, from within Basin Electric’s service area, Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) and Sen. Kent Conrad (D-ND). President Barack Obama had created the bipartisan commission to address our nation’s fiscal challenges.
While Basin Electric does not formally take a position on the senator’s message, we heartily endorse his methods of spreading the word. And his stellar dance moves.
Simpson represented Wyoming in the U.S. Senate from 1979 to 1997.
