Moment of Truth Project Launch
On March 8th, the Moment of Truth Project - an effort co-chaired by Erskine Bowles and Senator Alan Simpson which seeks to build on the momentum and prospect for bipartisan compromise created by their work as co-chairs of the President's National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform - was officially launched at an event on Capitol Hill. The event featured a series of prominent guest speakers, including several Members of Congress, former Fiscal Commission members, and thought and policy leaders from across the political spectrum. There was also a very interesting panel discussion - moderated by David Wessel of The Wall Street Journal - that focused on fiscal issues, including details of the Fiscal Commission plan, obstacles to enacting fiscal reform, and the prospects of a bipartisan agreement on needed comprehensive fiscal reforms.
