This afternoon, CRFB will be hosting a press conference at the National Press Club to urge the Super Committee to "Go Big." The press conference will feature remarks from co-chairs Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform in addition to comments from CRFB president Maya MacGuineas on why the Super Committee must exceed its current mandate if we are to put debt on a downward path this decade.

The press conference will begin at 2:30pm in the Conference Room at the National Press Club (529 14th Street Northwest, Washington, DC 20045). It will also be broadcast live on C-SPAN 3, so be sure to tune in.

At the event, CRFB will also release a letter co-signed by over 60 business leaders and policy experts urging the Super Committee to "Go Big." The New York Times published an article on the letter in today's paper, so it is clearly generating some attention.

Hope you can tune in!
