ABOUT THE GUEST SPEAKER


Brian Riedl is the Heritage Foundation's lead budget analyst and has built a solid reputation for interpreting, explaining, and reforming the often arcane realm of federal budget policy.  He will provide a breakdown of federal spending per household and discuss whether Missourians feel they are getting their money's worth.

Much of the current backlash against runaway federal spending can be attributed to Riedl's work.  In 2002 and 2003, his writings exposed the beginnings of a federal spending spree that was pushing spending to more than $30,000 per household for the first time since World War II.  In 2006, the Senate increased President George W. Bush's war funding bill with $14 billion in unrelated domestic spending.  Riedl's writings exposing this irresponsible spending received extensive media coverage, and the ensuing public backlash forced Congress to strip the $14 billion from the bill.  He participates in the bipartisan "Fiscal Wake-Up Tour", which holds town hall meetings across America focusing on the looming Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid crisis.

Riedl's budget research has been featured in front-page stories and editorials in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and The Los Angeles Times.  He has discussed budget policy on NBC, CBS, PBS, CNN, FOX News, MSNBC, and C-SPAN.

Riedl holds a master's degree in public affairs from Princeton University.
