Debt and deficit crises need more than a 'Gang of Six'

Before reading the March 8 front-page article "Prescribing bitter debt medicine, senators take case to public," I was in deep depression, certain this great country would go the way of Greece. Then, a ray of hope. Sen. Mark R. Warner (D) once turned Virginia around, and now he is gunning to do the same for America. But why only a "Gang of Six"? Funny, I thought there were 100 senators. Is it possible that 94 of them don't get it?

Please, 94 honorable ladies and gentlemen - we're $14 trillion in debt. The article ended with "this might be a moment in time" to get something done. Might? Moment? If you other 94 don't act now, our moment will be gone, and America will have lost its might.
