Lunch With Heritage Online Chat - Cutting the Budget

Posted By Todd Thurman On March 10, 2011 @ 5:30 pm In Ongoing Priorities | Comments Disabled

Spending is out of control. We are under a tremendous debt and it is getting worse. Is there anything that can be cut? We are joined by Heritage’s Budget expert, Brian Riedl. Brian has written extensively on the budget, including a paper on $343 billion worth of programs that can be cut [1], and a more recent one that points out the budget gimmicks the Obama Administration is using with the FY 2012 budget [2]. Brian will be taking your questions on what programs can be cut and how we can get the deficit under control.
