PCC hosts forum on U.S. fiscal policy Monday night

If you are like many Americans, you know that federal budget deficit and government economic policies are affecting your bottom line—you just don't know how or why. A forum Monday night is your chance to learn more.

A presentation led by Paul Hansen, the Concord Coalition’s Rocky Mountain States regional director, will be held at Pima Community College's Northwest campus at 6 p.m.

For the first time since World War II, the nation’s debt of $15.3 trillion exceeds the size of its entire annual economy. The U.S. Treasury’s estimate of the entire debt, including unfunded future obligations to federal pensions, Social Security and Medicare, is $51.3 trillion, the centrist economic think tank said in a press release.

“We are honored to host a well-respected organization like the Concord Coalition,” said Dr. Suzanne Miles, PCC’s provost and executive vice chancellor. “Their mission – to educate the public about our nation’s fiscal policy – dovetails perfectly with the college’s role in our community.”
