America's To-Do List: Protecting the Middle Class by Strengthening the U.S. Economy
529 14th Street, NW, 13th Floor , First Amendment Lounge
Washington, DC 20045
The federal government’s fiscal chasm must take center stage in post-election America, as Washington struggles to avoid a potentially crippling threat to the U.S. economy. The uncontrolled debt and deficit helps to explain the public’s belief that the economy is on the wrong track. But dealing with the debt is merely one of the to-do items the president and Congress must address if the United States hopes to regain its economic momentum.
The latest Allstate – National Journal Heartland Monitor Poll, the fifteenth in a series of groundbreaking surveys, will serve as a discussion driver and will gauge Americans’ perspectives on the best way to renew a stagnant middle class and strengthen the U.S. economy.
