ADVISORY: Podesta, Holtz-Eakin Debate Our Fiscal Future

September 14, 2010, 7:30 p.m.—8:30 p.m.

John D. Podesta of the Center for American Progress, Douglas Holtz-Eakin of the American Action Forum, and Jim Tankersley of National Journal invite you to join us for a debate on policy responses to the U.S. budget deficit.

The previous decade began with record budget surpluses but ended mired in red ink, with larger deficits projected far into the future. With the economy now headlining public debate in Washington, progressives and conservatives are of very different minds on how and when to address our current and long-term fiscal challenges. As midterm elections and the expiration of the Bush tax cuts approach, what should policymakers do to help bring the federal balance sheet back towards the black?

Please join us as John Podesta, President and CEO of the Center for American Progress, and Douglas Holtz-Eakin, President of the American Action Forum, engage in lively discussion and debate on a sensible solution for U.S. fiscal policy.
