Join former U.S. Ambassador and Congressman Dick Swett, Concord Coalition Executive Director Robert L. Bixby, and The Josiah Bartlett Center's President, Charlie Arlinghaus, for a spirited conversation on the programs and policies driving our national debt. Professor Charles Wheelan will moderate the discussion on our nation's fiscal future and delve into the divisive politics preventing meaningful reform.
This event is co-sponsored by Concord, Campaign to Fix The Debt, The Josiah Bartlett Center, Millennial Action Coalition, and The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy.
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.
