Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) is hosting a federal budget workshop with two nonpartisan organizations, the Concord Coalition and Fix the Debt, at the Campbell Community Center on Friday.

The Concord Coalition is a nationwide, non-partisan grassroots organization that educates the public about different causes and consequences of federal budget decisions. 

Fix the Debt is a non-partisan movement to put America on a better fiscal and economic path.

Attendees will work in small groups to examine a variety of fiscal policy alternatives, and share their ideas on how to improve the nation’s long-term fiscal outlook, organizers said.

“I’m excited about hosting this workshop with the Concord Coalition and Fix the Debt, and hearing first-hand from my constituents about their budget priorities,” Eshoo said. “There are many factors involved in creating a national budget and this is a unique opportunity for concerned citizens to learn and participate.”

The workshop is Friday, March 28 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Campbell Community Center (Orchard City Banquet Hall) located at 1 West Campbell Ave. 

Individuals who wish to attend can RSVP here, or call Rep. Eshoo’s Palo Alto office at (650) 323-2984.

This is stupid. How about a workshop to unelect professional politicians like Eshoo who have contributed zero to this country.

`` two nonpartisan organizations, the Concord Coalition and Fix the Debt'' Nonpartisan is in the eye of the beholder. These groups in general and Fix The Debt in particular have ties back to "rentiers". That is, folks who make money off of suppressing wages and increasing return on capital. They obfuscate the argument by saying it is all about finances -- just like you do around your kitchen table. That is a lie. Sovereign countries with fiat money (their own money not tied to a commodity like gold) chooses winners and losers by its policies. The "debt" gets fixed with increased GDP, inflation, taxes or a combination. These "debter" guys are all about zero inflation, high return on capital and paying for it with taxes on wage earners with depressed wages. It is partisan and it is the Republican agenda.
