A panel on Capitol Hill featuring Jim Kessler from Third Way, Bob Bixby from The Concord Coalition, Ed Lorenzen from the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, and Gordon Gray from American Action Forum to cover topics such as biennial budgeting, debt limit reform, and other ways to make the process more efficient. Co-sponsored with Congressman Reid Ribble.
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.
