House Budget Committee Hearing Today on Debt Burden
Today is a busy day for budget and fiscal policy, especially for us at CRFB. Not only do we have our "The Human Side of the Fiscal Crisis" forum today, but CRFB President Maya MacGuineas will testify at a House Budget Committee hearing on "Lifting the Crushing Burden of Debt" at 10 am.
Ms. MacGuineas will be joined by Doug Holtz-Eakin of American Action Forum; John Podesta from the Center for American Progress; and Carmen Reinhart from the University of Maryland. A live webcast of the hearing can be accessed here and written statements will be available here.
CRFB will also live Tweet the hearing @BudgetHawks (http://twitter.com/budgethawks) under #debtburden.
