At $22 trillion, the U.S. national debt exceeds the size of the entire economy. That $67,000 per person share of the national debt is larger than a typical family’s total annual income. But what does this really mean for the country? And what does it mean for you, personally? Leading fiscal and economic expert, Romina Boccia, joins us from the Heritage Foundation to discuss the driving forces behind the growing debt and reveal its impact on our economy and financial future. Solving the debt crisis requires bold reforms and citizen engagement. Find out how you can weather the fiscal storm!

As always, this event will feature ample appetizers, an open bar, and free covered parking in the lot attached to the restaurant.

Romina Boccia directs the Grover M. Hermann Center for the Federal Budget at the Heritage Foundation. Her research is focused on securing economic freedom, controlling the size and scope of government, expanding opportunity and flexibility for workers, reforming Social Security, and simplifying retirement savings. The Center leads the production of Heritage’s Blueprint for Balance, an annual federal budget plan that was the foundation of President Trump’s budget proposals to Congress, and which has had a profound influence on congressional budget resolutions. Often introduced as “an economist who speaks English,” for making complex topics easily understood, Boccia is a sought-after speaker and panel moderator who frequently travels the United States to speak at conferences and on college campuses. She often advises members of Congress and their staff, and appears regularly on national television and on podcasts and talk radio.
