WASHINGTON IS BROKEN. CAN THE STATES FIX IT?

Start/End Thursday, September 26, 2013 12:10 PM EDT -- 01:10 PM EDT
Location Name JG 102B

A Federalist Society & American Constitution Society debate featuring Goldwater Institute Constitutional Policy Director Nick Dranias and Professor Neil Kinkopf of Georgia State University College of Law.

It seems congress is constantly wrangling over the debt limit, which result in short-term fixes.  Meanwhile uncertainty plagues the economy & worries those on the receiving end of government spending.  In a recent book Mark Levin claims that to save the country states must amend the Constitution by convention.  Can a limited article V convention be held?  Will a balanced budget amendment allow for a permanent fix on our nations fiscal problems?

Free lunch from Strokos. Contact Jon-David Jorgensen at jj2572@columbia.edu with any questions.
