U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and U.S. Representative Mark Pocan, D-Wis., spoke at a panel on campus Thursday about the increasing federal debt and the need for citizens, specifically students, to take notice and begin acting to remedy the issue through bipartisanship.

The panel, which was hosted by the Bipartisan Issues Group and the Can Kicks Back, among other organization, also included David Walker, a former U.S. comptroller who has since devoted most of his time to discussing the federal debt. The discussion mainly focused on using bipartisanship and increased communication to address federal debt issues, such as social security.
