Time: 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
As the rhetoric of the election fades, America faces a dire fiscal cliff that will require honest discussion of entitlements. Must Social Security and Medicare be cut or can that be avoided through more revenue or other reforms? If benefits are reduced, how should that be done? Two prominent national experts, Dean Baker and Kevin Hassett, will discuss the options and momentous decisions facing Congress and the next President over the future of these two important federal programs. Baker and Hassett come to the debate as among the most thoughtful progressive and conservative commentators on entitlement reform. Register here: http://futuresocialsecuritymedicare.eventbrite.com.
