Watch Live: "Fixing the Debt: Reforming the Tax Code and Federal Health Spending"
Tomorrow, the Campaign to Fix the Debt will be hosting a half-day event that will bring together tax, health, and budget experts for a series of discussions on pressing budget issues. The event will start at 8:30 AM and will feature remarks from former OMB director and current Senator Rob Portman (R-OH), Senate Finance Committee chair Max Baucus (D-MT), and National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling.
It will also feature separate panel discussions on health care spending and tax reform with former lawmakers and policy experts from across the political spectrum weighing in on each subject. Given the central role that health spending and taxes are playing in the current budget discussions, it is certainly a timely discussion and promises to be very informative.
A livestream of the event can be seen below, and you can view more details about the event including the panel participants here.
