Scottsdale Supporter and Friend Lunch

Oct 29, 2013

With portions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) taking effect on October 1, and the issue of raising the federal debt limit back on the table, the spending debate is heating up in Washington. This debate has led to many questions by the general public: What is the real cost to taxpayers for ACA? Will the debt limit debate place entitlement reform and other meaningful spending reforms on the table? How would these spending reforms affect our future?

One important issue that has been lost in the debate is how this impacts the younger generation. Younger Americans are being suffocated by spending, subsidies, and debt. Washington has willfully ignored the looming crisis of entitlement spending, knowingly consigning young Americans to a future of crushing debt, persistent underemployment, and burdensome regulation. Politicians on both sides of the aisle share the blame.

Please join us on Tuesday, October 29, for a lunch with Mercatus Senior Research Fellow Veronique de Rugy to discuss the spending debate. She will share practical solutions for how lawmakers can address entitlement reform. She will also address issues related to the younger generation and how government intervention in student loans and the minimum wage will have a costly impact on our current and future economy.

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 for your support. Dress is business casual. Please invite friends or associates who might be interested.
