Panel Description:
Please join us for the inaugural America’s Future Foundation event in Pittsburgh. The Americas Future Foundation is a nonprofit organization based in Washington DC that is dedicated to developing future conservative and libertarian leaders. We are an organization that brings people together to discuss ideas and develop professional skills.

For this event we will discuss:
What can we do to get government spending under control? What lies ahead with an economic crisis continuing and state budgets in Pennsylvania and around the country continually falling short. With a single-payer healthcare package on the floor, stimulus funding and the largest national deficit the US has ever seen, what is the future of freedom and fiscal responsibility?

Have libertarians and conservatives found their voice through the turmoil of the economy? With a plummeting economy, do free market ideas stand a chance? Have Republicans discovered a comeback strategy based on ideas that libertarians and conservatives can support?

-Nathan Benefield, Director of Policy Research, The Commonwealth Foundation
-Matt Gabler, Pennsylvania State Representative (75th District)
-Mark Harris, Campaign Manager, Toomey for Senate
-Joe Henchman, Tax Counsel and Director of State Projects, the Tax Foundation
-Moderated by: Dan Garcia, Chair, Young Republicans of Allegheny County
