The Inform Plan Rally

NCPA Senior Fellow Larry Kotlikoff

NCPA Senior Fellow Larry Kotlikoff will keynote Thursday’s bipartisan Capitol Hill rally in support of the INFORM Act.  The Act requires the federal government to account for the true obligations of our entitlement programs…ALL OF THEM…as part of the national debt.

The Rally to Restore (Fiscal) Sanity will be held at Upper Senate Park on Capitol Hill beginning at 10:30 AM this Thursday, October 31st. The INFORM Act is a bipartisan bill introduced by Senators Tim Kaine (D-VA) and John Thune (R-SD). 

The INFORM ACT has been endorsed by 15 Nobel Laureates in Economics and more than 1,000 other economists.  It requires the federal government to  disclose the true size of our country’s fiscal gap and to address its intergenerational consequences.

In 2011, Dr. Kotlikoff estimated the fiscal gap to be well over $200 trillion and it currently stands at about $205 trillion.
