Robert Bixby & Sara Imhof: Restoring Fiscal Sanity in Washington
All Library locations will be closed on Monday, February 15 in observance of Presidents' Day.
Robert Bixby and Sara Imhof discuss the state of the American economy, and offer bipartisan solutions to reduce the national debt and improve the fiscal outlook for future generations on Wednesday, January 12, 2011, at 6:30 p.m. at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St.
In a program titled Restoring Fiscal Sanity in Washington, Bixby and Imhof will seek to cut through the usual partisan rhetoric and explain the causes and consequences of federal deficits and growing debt, and consider actions they believe can right the ship.
Bixby is the executive director of the Concord Coalition, a nonpartisan, grassroots organization dedicated to fiscal responsibility. Imhof serves as the Coalition’s Midwest regional director and health policy analyst.
The Concord Coalition is dedicated to educating the public about the causes and consequences of federal budget deficits, the long-term challenges facing America’s unsustainable entitlement programs, and how to build a sound economy for future generations. The organization was founded in 1992 by the late former Senator Paul Tsongas (D-Mass.), former Senator Warren Rudman (R-N.H.), and former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Peter Peterson.
