The Fiscal Solutions Tour

The Fiscal Solutions Tour
During the fall of 2010, the Peter G. Peterson Foundation and the Concord Coalition are conducting a national “Fiscal Solutions Tour,” a follow-up to the successful fall 2008 “Fiscal Wake-Up Tour.”
In cities across the nation, top policy experts are discussing options for defense and domestic spending cuts, Social Security and Medicare reforms, improvements in the health care system, better and fairer tax policies, and tougher budget controls in Congress.
Speaking on the Fiscal Solutions Tour are Robert L. Bixby, executive director of The Concord Coalition; David M. Walker, CEO of the Comeback America Initiative and former U.S. Comptroller General; Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of The American Action Forum and former director of the Congressional Budget Office; Bill Novelli, professor at Georgetown University, and former CEO of AARP; and Isabel Sawhill, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, and former associate director of the Office of Management and Budget.
The tour aims to foster informed public dialogue about policy solutions to the nation’s daunting fiscal and economic challenges. Rather than advancing a specific set of solutions, the tour will provide the public with a balanced perspective on the many different options. Many of these options are currently being considered by President Obama’s bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform as it prepares its recommendations for Congress and the Administration, which are due on December 1.
