Release of "Red Ink Rising"
On December 14, the Peterson-Pew Commission on Budget Reform hosted a public event at the National Press Club to announce the release of its report Red Ink Rising: A Call to Action to Stem the Mounting Federal Debt. Moderated by David Wessel of the Wall Street Journal, the six panelists included a distinguished group of fiscal experts, including among their many titles, former chairmen and ranking members of the House Budget Committee (Bill Frenzel, Jim Nussle, and Jim Jones) and two former CBO directors (Alice Rivlin and Douglas Holtz-Eakin). The panelists discussed the Commission’s proposal to address the debt.
