Next Wednesday, October 2nd, the Advance Arkansas Institute and the National Taxpayers’ Union will host a luncheon on the debt, the deficit, and the sequester. Dan Greenberg of AAI, Lee Schalk of NTU, and a mystery guest to be named later will give you the inside scoop on how federal spending is eating away at our kids’ future.
The event will begin at noon and lunch is free to the first 40 registrants.

And they say there’s no such thing as a free lunch!
Also, following the luncheon, there will be a brief public event outside Bosco’s starting at 1:00 p.m. Greenberg, Schalk, and our mystery guest will not only speak, but also distribute dessert.
In a statement to The Arkansas Project, Schalk said the event is an important step towards reining in federal spending:
Our goal is for Congress to keep the spending caps imposed by the Budget Control Act of 2011. The modest spending restraint of 3 cents on the dollar is an important first step in reigning in our out of control spending. So far, the sequester has been a success, with federal expenditures falling two years in a row – the first time since the end of the Korean War.
Keeping the caps, eliminating budget deficits, and ending the meteoric rise of our national debt must be a priority for legislators committed to our future prosperity. We can’t tax and spend our way out of debt and it’s a moral imperative that we stop heaping burdens on future generations.”
We’ll see you Wednesday.
