Students and faculty talk taxes, loans and Social Security

Campus Brief

"The Federal Budget: Who Wins and Who Loses" was the issue of Monday's Table Talk Lunch Series in the Kay Spiritual Center, where about 45 students and faculty showed up for the discussion.

John Irons from the Office of Management and Budget Watch and Brian Riedl from the Heritage Foundation spoke about the topics that include privatization, Social Security, student loans and grants and the design of the tax system.

Although the two differed in opinions, both men agreed that in order for the United States to recover, the budget would need to be balanced as soon as possible.

The Table Talk Lunch Series, sponsored by the Office of the University Chaplain, meets throughout the semester to discuss matters of moral, social and ethical concern.
