Senator, Virginia (D) & Senator, Georgia (R)

Monday, June 25, 2012 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM

Mark Warner

Even with the bitter partisanship in Congress during election season, the so-called Gang of Six, a bipartisan group of senators who came together to try to devise a way to cut $4 trillion out of federal spending in the coming decade, is still quietly at work. The group expects to have a debt-slashing plan ready before the November election, however many members of Congress do not believe that such legislation can be achieved during election season.

Senator Mark Warner organized the Senate's bipartisan Gang of Six, which now encompasses 45 Senators and 100 members of the House. The Gang of Six is led by Democrat Senator Warner and by Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss.

Mark Warner was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2008, and serves on the Senate's Banking, Budget, Commerce and Intelligence committees. Senator Warner has established himself as a national leader in efforts to find bipartisan consensus to create solutions to reduce the federal debt. Senator Warner was chosen by his colleagues on the Budget Committee to lead a bipartisan task force that is evaluating the effectiveness of federal agencies and programs. He has worked to improve military housing in Hampton Roads, and his efforts led the VA to dramatically expand health services provided to female military veterans suffering from PTSD after duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.

SaxbyChambliss

Saxby Chambliss was elected to serve a second term in the United States Senate in 2008. Chambliss is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee; the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry; the Senate Rules Committee; the Senate Special Committee on Aging; and presently serves as the vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. Chambliss' leadership and experience on homeland security and intelligence matters during his tenure in the House of Representatives earned him an appointment to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. Chambliss' previous role as chairman of the House Intelligence Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security made him one of the leading congressional experts on those issues.
