Divided Government: A Discussion on Debt, Deficits, and Divisions
This event has passed.
The 2023 Social Security Trustees’ Report underscores a fact we have known for decades: Social Security’s finances are on an unsustainable path.
“… policymakers must address the financial sustainability of the Medicare program,” said BPC Senior Vice President Bill Hoagland. “America’s population is rapidly aging, health care costs continue to rise, and combined, both will continue to increase Medicare’s financial obligations.”
With still no resolution to the debt ceiling standoff, growing concern about our standing in the global economy and the threat of recession, join BPC fellows Jim Capretta and Warren Payne for the second in our series of conversations with leading conservative voices about Republican priorities in a divided government. Panelists will discuss the debt ceiling, reducing federal deficits, trade, health care, and more.
- Jim Capretta | Senior Fellow, American Enterprise Institute and BPC Fellow
- Warren Payne | Senior Advisor, Mayer Brown and BPC Fellow
- Jason Fichtner | Vice President and Chief Economist, BPC (Moderator)
