CRFB Live Tweeting Super Committee Hearing with Bowles, Simpson, Domenici, and Rivlin

Nov 1, 2011

Later today, the Super Committee will be holding another public hearing with Fiscal Commission co-chairs, Moment of Truth Project Advisors, and CRFB board members Erskine Bowles and Al Simpson testifying together with Alice Rivlin (another CRFB board member) and Pete Domenici, co-chairs of the Bipartisan Policy Center's Debt Reduction Task Force. This hearing will focus on the two commission's proposals, both of which stabilize and reduce the debt as a share of the economy and address all areas of the budget, including tax reform, health-care reform, and Social Security.

This hearing should be particularly useful in pushing the Go Big message by showing how both of these commissions were able to get both Democrats and Republicans to agree on a big plan and how Going Big actually made it easier for them the attract bipartisan support.

The hearing will be live cast on the Committee's website at 1:30 PM EST. Be sure to follow CRFB's Twitter feed @BudgetHawks at that time as we live tweet the hearing.
