In its most recent annual report on the nation’s fiscal health, the Government Accountability Office warned: “The federal government faces an unsustainable long-term fiscal future.” Join The Concord Coalition and the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget for a fiscal policy discussion, including challenges facing the next administration, such as the rising national debt, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, taxes, general government spending, and more.
The event will feature Concord Coalition Executive Director Bob Bixby and Mike Murphy, Senior Vice president and Chief of Staff at the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.
More event details can be found on the Dartmouth website here.
Robert L. Bixby is executive director of The Concord Coalition, a nonpartisan organization that encourages fiscal responsibility in Washington and helps educate the public about the federal budget and the need to protect our children and future generations from excessive government debt. Bixby frequently speaks around the country on the nation’s fiscal challenges and possible bipartisan solutions, including greater government efficiency, tax reform and improvements in the entitlement program. He has testified at congressional hearings and been interviewed by news organizations around the country. Bixby has appeared on ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, CNN and Fox News.
Mike Murphy is Senior Vice President and Chief of Staff for the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, where he manages policy research and analysis on a variety of topics related to fiscal policy and the federal budget, as well as coordinates a wide array of projects related to advancing the Committee’s policy related initiatives. He is also the Director of FixUS, a special initiative of the Committee that through a number of efforts and partnerships seeks to better understand the root causes of our nation’s growing divisions and deteriorating political system, to work with others to bring attention to these issues and the need to fix them, and to build support for necessary changes.
