Senator Judd Gregg Presents: "Federal Budgeting in a Post-Cliff Environment" at Rockefeller 003 at 4:30 pm on Jan. 28, 2013
In the twilight hours before the impending fiscal cliff, America’s politicians were able to come to a bipartisan compromise and pass the “Cliff Bill.” By passing the bill at the last possible moment, were the politicians heroes or was this a bill that should have been passed before the issue became so pressing? Furthermore, one may wonder if this bill actually fixes the fiscal cliff and its underlying causes, or does it simply kick that can down the road and postpone impending fiscal tragedy?
Senator Judd Gregg served three terms in the U.S. Senate, including time as the Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee. He personally dealt with many of the problems that led to the fiscal cliff, and will share his professional knowledge on how this recently passed Cliff Bill will affect fiscal policy, the federal debt, the federal deficit, and the overall federal budgeting process.
Senator Gregg is currently co-chairing the Simpson-Bowles, plus “Fix the Debt” initiative with Erskine Bowles, Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY) and Governor Ed Rendell (PA), a bipartisan effort to promote significant Congressional action to reduce the debt and the deficit. In addition to his weekly column in “The Hill,” Senator Gregg is a regular contributor on CNBC, co-hosting “Squawk Box” and “World Wide Exchange,” and a guest on numerous other shows such as “Kudlow” and “Squawk on the Street.” The Senator is currently serving as a Distinguished Fellow at Dartmouth College, teaching, lecturing and counseling Dartmouth graduate and undergraduate students. Prior to serving three terms in the U.S. Senate, he served as Governor of New Hampshire from 1989 to 1993 and as U.S. Representative (R-NH) from 1981 to 1989.
