Event Speakers

Jason J. Fichtner

Former Senior Research Fellow

Please join Mercatus Center scholar Dr. Jason Fichtner for a lunch and discussion on the systemic problems of the federal budget, especially in addressing proposed reforms to entitlement programs—Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

Jason will navigate the twisting, puzzling conglomeration of bureaucratic steps, political goals, and accounting rules that go into making budget reforms. Please join Dr. Fichtner as he illustrates the structural and practical flaws that plague the budget process, and provides practical solutions for ways to help Congress bring fiscal responsibility to Washington.

This is not a fundraising event and there is no charge to join us. We are pleased to have you as our guest to show our thanks and appreciation to our donors. Dress is business casual. Please invite friends or associates who might be interested.

To RSVP for yourself and your guests, please contact Erin Connolly at 703-993-9913 or econnol4@gmu.edu.
