RPT-Cutting U.S. deficits would help the Fed tame inflation, White House says

(Repeats with no change to text)

"Enacting deficit reduction at this time would be complimentary to what the Fed is trying to accomplish," said White House National Economic Council Director Brian Deese in a briefing with reporters. (Reporting by Steve Holland and Trevor Hunnicutt)
