Will We Have the Political Will?
The "Super Committee" has been charged with making recommendations that would reduce deficits by $1.5 trillion over the next 10 years. Unfortunately, more is needed to fix the budget and put the debt on a sustainable path. In order to meaningfully address our nation's fiscal challenges, the Super Committee should go much further. The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget along with the New America Foundation, the Concord Coalition, and the Bipartisan Policy Center held a forum that brought together political, economic, and business leaders from across the spectrum to discuss the path ahead for the Super Committee and the reasons it should exceed their mandate and "Go Big." http://newamerica.net/events/2011/go_big
