How Would You Fix the Federal Budget
Wednesday, 20 July 2011

July 20--  Thursday Congressman John Barrow (GA-12) will sponsor a unique, interactive event to demonstrate the importance of balancing the federal budget and getting our nation’s fiscal house in order.

The event, called Principles & Priorities, is operated by a non-profit group called the Concord Coalition.  The program is an interactive exercise in which participants learn about balancing the federal budget by weighing and making the same policy decisions that lawmakers face. 

Participants will be able to review current spending priorities, suggest principles for the future, and then apply these principles by selecting from several dozen priorities being discussed in Washington.  By considering issues such as federal spending, taxes, and social programs, participants will gain firsthand experience in the complex issues of today's fiscal environment. They will then recommend a package of policies to put America on a sound budgetary foundation for the next several years.

The workshop concludes with a wrap-up discussion of the budget results and the lessons learned from the exercise.  More information about the event can be found online at: http://www.concordcoalition.org/act/fiscal-wake-tour
