Dallas Chamber Backs “Deficit” Town Hall

Calling the growing federal budget deficit a “critical national issue that deserves public input,” Jim Oberwetter of the Dallas Regional Chamber has thrown the chamber’s weight behind this Saturday’s AmericaSpeaks Town Hall on the deficit. Dallas is one of 19 U.S. communities where non-partisan meetings will be held that day about the problem via satellite and Internet hookup. Organizers have been aiming to get 500 regular Joes and Janes to attend the 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m. confab at the Dallas Convention Center. As of today, they say, more than 350 had signed up here for the town hall, whose recommendations will be passed along to Congress and President Obama.
