Informal Forum (4/16/2010): Breaking the Habit of Deficit Spending

The Russell Forum for Civic Life in Georgia (RFCLG) is hosting National Issues Forums on a monthly basis at the Russell Library. Our next informal forum will take place this Friday, April 16th from 3:00-4:30PM in the Russell Library auditorium.

This month's deliberative forum considers the consequences of our mounting national debt. The bad habit of deficit spending is more apparent than ever, and pressures on the federal budget will soon get worse. It is not enough to support deficit reduction in principle. The challenge is to see what changes most Americans are willing to accept as the best way out of a difficult situation.

Using the National Issues Forums guide, The $9 Trillion Debt: Breaking the Habit of Deficit Spending, the group will consider several approaches to tackling this complex issue. A trained neutral moderator will guide the discussion. The event is free and open to all. More information is available by contacting Jan Levinson at 706-542-5788.
