Bill Richardson on the Budget: We need a mediator

October 18, 2013

SiriusXM POTUS host Julie Mason was joined by former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson who gave his thoughts on the recent budget crisis, offering suggestions on how reaching an agreement could be made easier.

“I think the relationships, the personal relationships are so bad, that you need a mediator,” said Richardson. “Shut them in a room where they have to come out with an agreement. Keep them away from the press.”

Richardson also spoke about the importance of finding middle-ground.

“There’s nothing wrong with the word ‘compromise,” he said.
