There will also be an emphasis on the need to curbing future increases in health care costs. Some of the speakers hold either state or national positions with the Fix the Debt campaign.
The events in the coming weeks will help the American public to better understand many of the possible solutions that have been suggested by bipartisan commissions and others – and some of the trade-offs that should be carefully considered.
