The University of Virginia Center for Politics held a forum called "The Politics of the Nation’s Debt" to discuss the present-day politics and economics related to the federal government’s debt. The discussion aimed to shed some light on the political maneuvering conducted by both parties and present unfiltered truths about the debt. Findings from the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform were also discussed. The panel included former Senator Alan Simpson, co-chair of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform; Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research; and David Walker, President of the Comeback America Initiative and former head of the GAO. A video of the event is available below or after the jump.
