America is at a critical crossroads. The choices that U.S. elected officials make in connection with the role of government and its finances over the next 5 years will largely determine whether America's collective future will be better than its past. What are America's fiscal facts? What are sensible solutions to America's fiscal challenges? How will these solutions work to make America stay great? How can the American Dream stay alive for today's families and future generations of Americans?
Presidential candidates have been invited.
