Update on the Gang of Six

From the Wall Street Journal:

About a month ago, senior Democrats in Congress appealed to the White House to get involved in a separate set of bipartisan deficit-reduction talks led by a group of senators known as the Gang of Six. The Democrats wanted the White House to influence the talks before they became too focused on spending cuts. A Democrat involved in that appeal said White House help hasn't been forthcoming.

On Monday, Sens. Mark Warner (D., Va.) and Saxby Chambliss (R., Ga.), who are leading the Gang of Six effort, plan to brief 500 business leaders and others at the Rotary Club of Atlanta about their effort. The group is close to finalizing a proposal that would cut the deficit by $4 trillion over 10 years.
