NAFCU Event to Feature Debate Between Presidential Campaign Surrogates
WASHINGTON -- Economic advisers to the two major-party presidential candidates will debate proposals for fixing the economy during a luncheon session at NAFCU's Congressional Caucus next month.
Douglas Holtz-Eakin, senior policy adviser to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Gary Gensler, senior economic adviser to Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), will speak on Monday, Sept. 15, the second day of the four-day event.
Holtz-Eakin is a former director of the Congressional Budget Office and was also the chief economist of the President's Council of Economic Advisers and an economics professor at Syracuse University.
Gensler served as both the undersecretary and as an assistant secretary of treasury during the Clinton administration. He was also a top adviser to Sen. Paul Saranes, a former chairman of the Senate Banking Committee.
"The upcoming presidential election and the economy are of top interest for everyone this year, so we are very pleased to be able to offer caucus attendees the chance to hear the presumptive presidential candidates' economic platforms firsthand," said NAFCU President Fred R. Becker.
