On Feb. 5 at the Lewis Auditorium on Flagler College’s campus, Paul Stebbins, a founding member of FixUS, an initiative of the Campaign to Fix the Debt, will present to the public as part of the Forum on Government and Public Policy series.

“Trillion dollar deficits are set to return within the next year and our already record high national debt will skyrocket over the coming decade,” said Stebbins.

He intends to discuss the country’s perilous fiscal and political situations. He will explain how our political environment surrounding our debt and federal budget have come to symbolize the brokenness of the U.S. political system.
