Erskine Bowles speaks about deficit reduction at the NLC

I don’t write much about Federal issues, but as we saw last week their budget decisions do effect us.  The linked video is something that I think everybody should see.

I wanted to share with you a video of one of the seminars at the recent NLC Conference in Washington DC.  Erskine Bowles (Clinton Chief of Staff) was one of the leaders along with Sen. Alan Simpson (R – Wyoming) who worked to come up with recommendations for deficit reduction.  Mark Bilderback and I really liked this speech.

Here is a link to the video.

The entire video is about 75 minutes long and also includes Ron Sims (HUD) and Michelle Obama.  If you keep watching Ron Sims was a great speaker, he made me want to run through a wall…

Hearing from Erskine Bowles was great, there are many on the left that say entitlement changes go to far and many on the right that hate taxation changes.  I thought this was very reasonable, so I am a flaming moderate on this one…  Watch the video and decide for yourself.
