MPR and the Citizen's League team up for a live event discussion in Policy and a Pint: Budget Breakdown, From Washington to Minnesota - to us! tonight, Tuesday April 14, 2009:
Every day, the news brings us more stories about the recession, and how we got here -- and how the government intends to fix it. But do YOU feel like you understand it yet? Then of course, there's the STIMULUS PACKAGE that national and state leaders debate on a daily basis... but what really IS it, and how is it supposed to work -- both nationally and here at home? We might not be able to explain it all, but we're gonna take a pretty good stab at it ... and enjoy a beer in the process. Join Steve Seel as he hosts our first Policy and a Pint of the season, as we analyze "The Budget Breakdown -- from Washington to Minnesota."
So come clean. Do you feel like you understand our current economic state? How is the stimulus package supposed to work vs. how you would like it to work?
