And the ‘Fiscy Award’ Goes To…

Dec 16, 2010 3:35pm

ABC News' Jonathan Karl reports: They’re not quite the Grammies, or even the Emmys, but it may just be the award that matters during this era of staggering budget deficits.  We’re talking about the “Fiscy Awards” – a new award given to the political leaders who have shown the greatest leadership in promoting “fiscal responsibility.” With the federal debt no more than $13 trillion, you’d think the Fiscy Award committee would have a tough time finding somebody in government to honor for promoting fiscal responsibility.  But they have found three.  ABC News has learned the first annual Fiscy Awards will be given out on January 5 to: -          Sen. Kent Conrad (D-ND) – The chairman of the Senate Budget Committee. -          Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) – The incoming chairman of the House Budget Committee -          Gov. Mitch Daniels (R-IN) – The former Director of the Office of Management and Budget for President George W. Bush. The awards committee for the Fiscys includes a stable of deficit hawks, including the Concord Coalition and the Committee for a Responsible Budget and the Comeback America Initiative.
