Roger Hickey, co-director of the Campaign for America's Future, testifies before the White House Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. At the hearing, Hickey says that while he supports smart economic policies to reduce our structural federal deficit over time, "we are in danger of killing or weakening needed growth in the name of reducing deficits." He warns that some of our deficit-reduction strategies are misguided. He also adds that "reducing the deficit cannot be our only economic policy goal. We also need to invest in the future."
