WASHINGTON — The question of how to curb long-term federal spending continues to loom over Congress.

While a congressional committee tasked with outlining at least $1.2 trillion in savings couldn't get the job done, U.S. Senate candidates from Hawaii have some ideas about what would work.

No surprise: Candidates took the opportunity to juxtapose their views against the strategy outlined by Rep. Mazie Hirono, who is also running for Senate.

Have feedback? Suggestions?
