On Thursday, September 30, 2010, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget convened a policy forum, "Getting Specific: How to Fix the Budget." The event brought together policymakers and a wide array of the nation's foremost fiscal experts to discuss how we can get specific in fixing the federal budget. Also at the event, CRFB released two policy papers for a new series entitled Let's Get Specific, offering a plan to reform Social Security and another to help further control rising health care costs. Policymakers and voters recognize that the growing debt is a major issue that must be addressed. Now our leaders must move beyond paying lip service and towards producing results. Only by offering and discussing explicit proposals can we move forward. The forum challenged policymakers to come up with specific solutions to deal with the country's fiscal challenges and offered ideas in areas ranging from defense cuts, to Social Security, to health care, to tax policy. http://www.newamerica.net/events/2010/getting_specific_how_to_fix_the_budget
