Midwest Regional Director led constituents of Gary Peters and other citizens of the 9th district of Michigan through the interactive budget exercise "Principles & Priorities" where they could make public policy decisions that could reduct the nation's deficit over the next 10 years.
Principles & Priorities is our flagship exercise that has been used in hundreds of High Schools, Colleges and Universities across the country. In it, participants make decisions about the best combination of program spending and tax policies to match with their larger sense of what the principles behind our budgets should be and what priorities the government should place at the forefront of fiscal decision-making.
