AmericaSpeaks: Our Budget, Our Economy is a national discussion to find common ground on tough choices about our federal budget. Americans from across the country will come together to weigh in on strategies to ensure a sustainable fiscal future and a strong economic recovery. This National Town Meeting will simultaneously link all the meeting sites and online participants across the United States, all on the same day. It will educate the American public about the challenges facing our nation, provide Americans with a neutral space to explore the issues and weigh the trade offs, and deliver to political leaders in Washington a clear message about the shared priorities of a large, demographically representative group of Americans. This group will be joining the broadcast in a community meeting via the internet at Kennesaw State. Opinions, values and decisions about our country’s budget are not the private domain of any party or organization. The meeting will be held in Room 1020 A&B in the Social Science Building (the large building near the rear of the campus by the Gazebo and the iron sculpture of the Earth).
