The budget process has become so flawed, it should just be dumped, says former New Hampshire GOP Sen. Judd Gregg. Instead, Congress should implement bipartisan fiscal reform, he says.

The solution: “A series of legislative acts that would actually move the ball down the field on fiscal reform,” Gregg writes. “This has to start with the recognition that nothing is going to happen, … unless it is done through bipartisanship.”

The focus should be on Social security, energy, budget process reform, tax reform, even immigration reform, he says.
