We at the Concord Coalition are venturing into new territory today; the Fiscal Wake-Up Tour will be webcasted live on our site (we hope!)… (As if today were not exciting enough with both the Administration and CBO updated budget outlooks coming out!)

Here’s our announcement:

WATCH ONLINE AS U.S. SENATOR SUSAN COLLINS JOINS THE FISCAL WAKE-UP TOUR TO DISCUSS NATION’S FISCAL CRISIS

On Tuesday, August 25th, from 12:30 pm – 2pm, United States Senator Susan Collins will join The Concord Coalition’s Bob Bixby, the Honorable David M. Walker of The Peter G. Peterson Foundation, William Marshall of The Progressive Policy Institute and Stuart Butler of The Heritage Foundation for a presentation of The Concord Coalition’s Fiscal Wake-Up Tour in Kennebunkport, Maine.

We invite you this watch this event live at:

www.concordcoalition.org

The Fiscal Wake-Up Tour aims to explain in plain terms why budget analysts of diverse perspectives are increasingly alarmed by the nation’s fiscal outlook. The Fiscal Wake-Up Tour has been profiled in “60 Minutes” and a recent documentary entitled I.O.U.S.A.

Please join us online!

    Diane,

    I caught part of the event live. If/when Concord posts the video, it would be great if each chart can be shown concurrent with the speaker’s discussion of it, since charts were not visible on camera (at least during the parts that I saw, and I presume throughout the event).
