The Need for Spending Reform
The $17 Trillion Debt Threat & America’s Spending Addiction
This event has SOLD OUT but you can LIVE STREAM starting at 8:00amET on Thursday July 11th @ CV4A.org/AdvanceReform/LIVE
The federal government will soon hit yet another grim fiscal milestone — $17 trillion in national debt…with no end in sight. America's unsustainable balance sheet reflects a spending addiction that, if left unaddressed, poses long-term economic consequences and national security threats. Concerned Veterans for America believes only spending reform—across the government and including everyone's "sacred cows" — can return the country to a sound fiscal track.
How can America best address this spending problem? What are the short-term opportunities and long-term necessities? How can veterans, and all Americans, demand real spending reform? On July 11th, Concerned Veterans for America will sponsor a Weekly Standard-hosted event to answer these urgent questions.
Keynote addresses from:
Senator Marco Rubio
United States Senator from Florida
Senator Ted Cruz
United States Senator from Texas
Governor Ed Rendell
Co- Chair, Campaign to Fix the Debt
