FISC­AL FAL­LOUT: WHAT IS “RE­SPONS­IBLE” IN TODAY’S FISC­AL REAL­ITY?

A Na­tion­al Journ­al LIVE Policy Sum­mit

WASH­ING­TON, D.C., Septem­ber 11, 2013 — On Thursday, Na­tion­al Journ­al will host Fisc­al Fal­lout: What Is “Re­spons­ible” in Today’s Fisc­al Real­ity?, an in-depth policy sum­mit ex­amin­ing what is be­ing done to solve the na­tion’s long-term debt prob­lem.

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 the ef­fects, as evid­ent in our weak­en­ing dol­lar, lack of for­eign in­vest­ment, and slowed wage growth; most eco­nom­ists agree that the im­plic­a­tions of the 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?

Join Na­tion­al Journ­al for a policy sum­mit con­ven­ing mem­bers of Con­gress and oth­er ex­perts to ex­am­ine what it means to be a re­spons­ible lead­er in today’s eco­nomy.

"Senate Democrats on Thursday failed in their first attempt to save the state and local tax deduction, which helps many residents of California and other high-cost states reduce their federal income tax bills. The Republican-controlled Senate voted 52-47 to reject an amendment that would have prevented the Senate from considering any bill that repeals or limits the deduction as part of a planned tax overhaul."
