Florida Republican U.S. Senator George LeMieux will be hosting a meeting on possible solutions to the country's long term budget issues next Wednesday in Tampa at the Stetson Law School campus at 5 p.m.
Joining him will be one of the most revered public officials when it comes to talking about the debt, former U.S. Comptroller General David M. Walker, along with the Concord Coalition's Executive Director Robert L. Bixby.
Led by the Tea Party over a year ago, concerns about the growing debt have catapulted into a leading issue for Americans, which troubles some progressive economists who believe the ailing economy needs more stimulus right now, instead of pulling back and worrying about the debt and deficit.
It also comes as debate is expected to heat up when Congress returns back to Washington in September regarding what to do about what are known as the "Bush tax cuts." Those include escalations of not just income rate levels, but also on capital-gains, dividends and the estate tax.
