Event 9/21: Urging the Super Committee to Go Big

In the past few weeks, CRFB and many others -- including 36 Senators from both sides of the aisle, the Blue Dogs, and more than 60 business leaders, former government officials, and other budget experts -- have been calling for the Super Committee to ‘Go Big’ and exceed their mandate of finding $1.5 trillion in deficit reduction measures over the next ten years. This sentiment has clearly been gaining traction and has been echoed constantly in the media since then.

The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget is hosting a forum that will bring together leaders from across the political spectrum to discuss the path ahead for the Super Committee and the reasons it should ‘Go Big.’ Among those speaking will be Erskine Bowles, Alan Greenspan, Senators Mike Crapo and Mark Warner, as well as CRFB board members Jim Nussle, Alice Rivlin, John Spratt, among other experts. Seating is limited, so we ask that you please RSVP to Kingsley Trotter at trotter@newamerica.net.

Be sure to tune back to The Bottom Line as we will be embedding a live webcast of the event.
