Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget

Talking Sequester and Debt in Idaho

Feb 22, 2013

CRFB's Maya MacGuineas joined former Sen. Alan Simpson (R-WY), Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Mike Crapo (R-ID) and Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID) at the University Of Idaho for the McClure Center Symposium on Federal Fiscal Issues on February 19 for a program that was produced by Idaho Public Television.

Much of the discussion focused on the upcoming sequestration and how it is not the best way to address the national debt. There was also a frank discussion on the need for compromise on a comprehensive approach that deals with all parts of the budget.

Watch the program for a better understanding of the sequester and what needs to be done to put the U.S. on a better budget path.
