Pizza and Politics: Fixing the Federal Debt
Pizza and Politics:
Making Tough Decisions Toward Fixing the Federal Debt
Wednesday, March 13 at 6:30 p.m. CT
Free and Open to the Public
See what it’s like to make tough decisions toward fixing the federal debt, and try your hand at creating policies to put America on sound fiscal ground.
During an interactive “Principles and Priorities” federal budgeting exercise created by the Concord Coalition, you will consider:
- What is the current composition of the federal budget? How are taxes spent and who pays them?
- What options are being considered to change the federal budget, strengthen the economy, and improve our quality of life?
- What kind of political will and compromise will be required of our political leaders to change or even to maintain current federal budget priorities?
Pizza will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Presented by the Nelson and Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership and Lipscomb College of Business in partnership with the Concord Coalition and the Campaign to Fix the Debt.
