Online Chat on our Fiscal Future

Posted By Todd Thurman On May 5, 2011 @ 6:00 pm In Economics | Comments Disabled

Join our “Lunch with Heritage” chat from 12-1 ET. We are taking questions about the growth of entitlement programs and how they affect our  fiscal future. We will be joined by Research Associate Kate Nix, one of the co-authors of the 2011 Budget Chart Book [1] which graphically illustrates the unsustainable path of federal spending now and in the future. The chart book paints a grim picture of our national debt [2]federal spending [3], and the dangerous growth of the entitlement state [4].  Join us with your questions.
