The Federal Budget: Making Tough Choices

The Federal Budget: Making Tough Choices

Fall 2014 Symposium

About the Symposium

The Federal budget deficit is just under 500 billion dollars. Resolving that deficit will require difficult decisions about what we, as a nation, wish to do about taxation and important programs such as Social Security and Medicare. In this symposium, former Members of Congress will help participants frame the fiscal issues that face the nation. A budget simulation, led by the Concord Coalition, will provide an opportunity for attendees to try to reach a consensus about how to reach the goal of a balanced budget.
