Former Gov. Ed Rendell, Sen. Rubio, & Sen. Cruz to Keynote Media Event: THE NEED FOR SPENDING REFORM

The $17 Trillion Debt Threat & America's Spending Addiction

Jul 10, 2013, 06:30 ET from Concerned Veterans for America

ARLINGTON, Va., July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On July 11, former Pennsylvania Gov. and Co-Chair of Campaign to Fix the Debt, Ed Rendell, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will keynote Concerned Veterans for America and The Weekly Standard's second 'Defend & Reform' Breakfast Event.

The federal government will soon hit yet another grim fiscal milestone—$17 trillion in national debt.  Sadly, these milestones just tick past as Americans have grown accustomed to Washington's spending addiction. However, this type of overspending cannot continue without threatening our economic health and ability to keep our country safe. Concerned Veterans for America believes only spending reform—across the government and including everyone's "sacred cows"—can put this country on sound financial footing.

How can America best address this spending problem? What are the short-term opportunities for reform and the long-term problems that simply must be tackled? How can veterans, and all Americans, demand real spending reform? On July 11th, Concerned Veterans for America will sponsor a Weekly Standard-hosted event to answer these urgent questions.

Bill Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard, will also lead a panel discussion including Veronique de Rugy of the Mercatus Center, Pete Hegseth of Concerned Veterans for America, and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (IL-16)
