Conference on the Presidential Candidates’ Domestic Policy Plans
April 22, 2008
With the 2008 election in full swing, a number of key domestic policy issues have come to the fore. Whether it is addressing health care reform, economic issues, climate change, or reforming the tax code, a lively debate is unfolding amongst the three remaining candidates. However, given the nature of the primary process, it is difficult to take an in-depth, side by side look at the various policies and plans of Senators Clinton, Obama and McCain.
Please join us for lively discussion on the domestic policy plans of the Presidential candidates at a half-day conference sponsored by American University, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, the New America Foundation, and the Tax Foundation on Tuesday, April 29th from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Held at the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum in Washington, D.C., this forum includes top advisers to the campaigns, as well as leading policy experts from across the political and ideological spectrum. The event will examine the differences and similarities of the domestic plans, and explore the impact they would have if implemented.
