Where are We Headed with the Federal Budget? Former Congressman Paul Hodes and the Concord Coalition Respond
Exeter – Non-partisan agencies, such as the Congressional Budget Office and the Government Accountability Office, warn that the Federal budget is on an unsustainable path. And while political leaders continue to turn a blind-eye to the need for long-term fiscal policy reform, the federal debt grows closer to $20 trillion.
Recently proposed tax and spending plans run the risk of compounding existing budget shortfalls, moving the needle in the wrong direction. For the sake of current and future generations, political leaders and citizens must act with fiscal responsibility in mind.
To educate the public about what’s at stake, the Rockingham County Democrats are sponsoring a talk by Paul Hodes, former Congressman from New Hampshire’s Second District, and Chase Hagaman, Regional Director of the Concord Coalition. Their talk will be this Wednesday, July 5, at 7:00 pm at the Exeter Inn (Daniel Webster Room), 90 Front Street, Exeter, NH.
Hon. Paul W. Hodes served two terms in Congress (2007-2011). A graduate of Dartmouth College and Boston College Law School, Hodes is President of a not-for profit political advocacy organization, an attorney, consultant to businesses and not-for profit institutions and a musician.
Chase A. Hagaman is the New England regional director of The Concord Coalition. Hagaman, a resident of New Hampshire, organizes public education events, performs media outreach and engages volunteers in Concord's fiscal responsibility efforts. He is a licensed attorney, having received his law degree from the University of New Hampshire after getting a Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of South Florida. The Concord Coalition is a non-partisan grassroots organization that advocates for generationally minded fiscal policy in Washington.
A question-and-answer session will follow their remarks.
The event is free and open to the public.

The federal debt will soon hit $20 trillion. Non-partisan agencies, such as the Congressional Budget Office and the Government Accountability Office warn that the budget is on an unsustainable path, while few in Congress or the Trump Administration seem to be concerned. They should be.
