CEO Statement: Ok With New Revenues

Wall Street Journal reports that Chief executives of more than 80 big-name U.S. corporations, from Aetna Inc. to Weyerhaeuser Co. are banding together to pressure Congress to reduce the federal deficit with tax-revenue increases as well as spending cuts  This declaration differs sharply from those of several other business groups which urge Washington to deal with the deficit and avoid across-the-board spending cuts and tax increases set for year-end – but avoid any stance on the politically charged issue of raising taxes.
