Excerpt

Phil Smith, a director of the Concord Coalition, spoke to the students at the class following the vote.

Smith applauded the students for their balanced approach to deficit reduction. He encouraged them to share what they learned from the exercise with their peers as well as to speak out on these issues on behalf of the nation’s young adults, a group Smith noted will be deeply affected by the choices under consideration in Washington.
