Friday, September 21 the tour was in Denver and had two events. In the morning Dave spoke at a joint event hosted by Colorado Concern, the Denver Chamber of Commerce, and the Colorado Society of CPAs. Friday evening Dave spoke at the University of Denver. It was a special event titled, “Restoring Fiscal Responsibility Town Hall Event” hosted by the School of Accountancy in the Daniels College of Business and the Institute for Truth in Accounting. Christina Romer, who served as White House Chair of Economic Advisers under President Barack Obama from 2009-2010, also spoke at the event. After each presentation questions from the audience were posed and both presenters were given the chance to answer.
The auditorium was filled with around 400 people, who supported the idea of a grand bargain and that Congress needs to show leadership. The crowd clapped in agreement mutliple times throughout the event. The audience was receptive to the ideas and are ready to ensure that the presidential candidates are pushed to present real solutions during the presidential debates. A link to the video of the event will be posted soon.
