Strengthening of America - Our Children's Future

Our nation is on an unsustainable fiscal path.  This is not a matter of ideology.  It is simple arithmetic.

To help the nation begin to seriously tackle this challenge, former Senators Sam Nunn (D-GA), Pete Domenici (R-NM), Warren Rudman (R-NH) and Evan Bayh have convened a bipartisan group of former Senators and Representatives to raise public consciousness of the magnitude of the problem. They came together this fall for a series of forums to address the potential consequences, the trade-offs of various solutions and the urgency for action.  Their effort is called: Strengthening of America - Our Children's Future.

Four public forums were scheduled to address different aspects of our fiscal challenge.  Each of the four forums resembled a Congressional hearing, with high-level former U.S. governement officals providing remarks before a panel of former elected representatives.
