Cato Club Naples - The Sequester and Other Possible Victories in the Battle to Restrain Leviathan

City Seminar
April 10, 2013 12:00PM
Naples, FL
Featuring Dan Mitchell, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute; and moderated by Robert Levy, Chairman, Cato Institute.

Join us for Cato Club Naples — an exclusive monthly luncheon held in season for Cato Sponsors whose annual contribution is $1,000 or more. This month’s luncheon, our last for this season, features a presentation by our senior fellow and one of the nation’s leading tax experts, Dan Mitchell, on the impact of the sequester and what it means for limited government.

After record increases in the burden of federal spending under Presidents Bush and Obama, the pendulum may finally be swinging back in a libertarian direction. A sequester recently took place, reducing the federal government’s spending authority by $85 billion. Moreover, the pro-spending lobbies weren’t able to undo the sequester in the just-passed “continuing resolution.” But this minor victory could be a sign of things to come. Dan Mitchell will talk about how the momentum from the sequester may carry over to the “debt limit” fight and ultimately to Cato-inspired entitlement reform.

It is sure to be an informative and thought-provoking discussion. I hope your schedule will allow you to join us on April 10 in Naples.
