The U.S. Fiscal Debate: Our Continuing Challenge

The Council of American Ambassadors, the United States Association of Former Members of Congress and Fix the Debt co-sponsored a working luncheon on the U.S. fiscal debate on Friday, January 17, 2014.

The Hon. Joseph DioGuardi (R-NY, 1985-1989) and The Hon. George Hochbrueckner (D-NY, 1987-1995) led a discussion about the federal budget and the debt ceiling limit which continue to cause gridlock in the Congress.

Mr. John Stoltzfus, Oppenheimer & Co. Inc.'s Chief Market Strategist, and Mr. Marc Goldwein, Senior Policy Director of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, provided their outlook for the U.S. stock market in light of the February 7 debt limit deadline.

The Honorable Donald Blinken, Vice Chairman of the Council of American Ambassadors and a former United States Ambassador to Hungary (1994-1998), and Mr. Peter Weichlein, Chief Executive Officer of the United States Association of Former Members of Congress, served as event co-chairs.
