Allan Sloan and Geoff Colvin talked about their Fortune Magazine cover story, “Hey Washington: Enough Already!” They describe the article as a common sense approach to steering the economy out of its rut. The two say they usually have different journalistic and personal styles and generally reach different conclusions, suggesting that if they can reach a consensus members of Congress can, too. Some of their proposals are restricting payments of Medicare end-of-life care, surcharging smokers and the obese for Medicare coverage, raising the Social Security retirement, age and eliminating the tax deduction for mortgage interest. Both writers acknowledge that the proposals are painful and there must be shared misery for all Americans in order to improve the long term economic outlook for the country. close
