Manchester and New Haven Events
Sunday, September 9 2012
The tour kicked off in Manchester, NH on Friday, September 7 at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at St. Anselm College.
Dave interacted with a diverse crowd of over 100 people. The College Republicans and College Democrats cosponsored the event, but there were also some organized groups in attendance that were protesting any cuts to Social Security and Medicare.
In order to make real progress everything needs to be on the table: reforms in all areas such as budgeting, defense, health care, Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, politics, taxes, and other.
Overall there was a majority of support for the illustrative reforms, indicating that they can gain bipartisan support.
There was an even larger degree of support at the Yale event this afternoon, Saturday, September 8, which was hosted by the Yale School of Management. The Yale event was more intimate, with about 75 attendees, but had a great question and answer session following Dave’s presentation.
