Fiscal Fallout: What is "Responsible" in Today's Fiscal Reality?

Thursday, September 12, 2013 8:00 AM - 10:30 AM EDT

Newseum, Knight Broadcast Studio - Third Floor | 555 Pennsylvania Avenue N.W. | Washington, DC 20001

A weak economy paired with high levels of government spending has put America on an unsustainable fiscal trajectory. The U.S. is already starting to see effects evident in our weakening dollar, lack of foreign investors, and slowed wage growth; most economists agree that the implications of our growing debt are dire. With one of the most ideologically polarized Congresses of all time in office, can Washington come to a consensus on controlling the nation's growing $16.7 trillion debt?

National Journal
hosted a policy summit convening members of Congress and other experts who examined what is being done to solve the long-term debt problem.
