ChrossTalk Episode 7: Lawrence Purpuro

One quick note, in the interview I cited Ezra Klein for the 600,000 job loss statistic in the next year under the current balanced budget amendment, while the actual statistic referred to the job loss due to an increase in interest rates on our debt. I meant to be referring to this statistic from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities which states that the predicted job loss under the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act would be 700,000. Read the Ezra Klein article here, and the CBPP statement here.
