The Concord Coalition luncheon address: Central Exchange-KC

Date and Time:

Wednesday, January 12, 2011 - 11:45am - 1:00pm

Summary:

Federal Fiscal Challenges for the New Congress and Beyond

A new U.S. Congress takes over in January, and our federal fiscal challenges and escalating national debt are high on the priority list.  This timely program brings Robert L. Bixby, J.D., executive director of the Concord Coalition, to The Central Exchange for a clear look at the
long-term challenges and consequences facing America in terms of fiscal policy and national debt.

 

Bixby and Sara Imhof, Ph.D., midwest regional director and health policy analyst with the Coalition, discuss how our nation got into this tenuous situation and outline solutions that can realistically make a marked improvement in our future.  They will discuss the importance of citizens influencing their federal leaders to act now to ensure that future generations can live the American Dream.

 

The Concord Coalition is a nationwide, non-partisan, grassroots organization which advocates generationally responsible fiscal policy. It is dedicated to educating the public about the causes and consequences of federal budget deficits, the long-term challenges facing America's unsustainable entitlement programs, and how to build a sound economy for future generations.

About Forum Events:

The Concord Coalition believes that only with an engaged, informed and demanding public can the nation's fiscal challenges be met. The Concord Coalition's mission is to cut through the usual partisan rhetoric and stimulate a more realistic public dialogue on what we want our nation's future to look like, along with the required trade-offs. We believe that elected leaders in Washington know there is a problem, but they are unlikely to act unless forced to by their constituents.
