In a career hallmarked by a fearlessness of confronting the most intractable issues of our times, Alan Simpson served as the co-chair of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, a bi-partisan group looking to erase the United States’ multi-trillion dollar debt.  He is also the co-Founder, with Erskine Bowles, of The Campaign to Fix the Debt, a non-partisan movement to put America on a better fiscal and economic path. Describing himself as someone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so, this is only the latest challenge taken on by Simpson who is best known for being a forceful voice for common-sense policy throughout his nearly two decades in the Senate. With quick wit and a straightforward style, Simpson tackles the most controversial of topics on the national agenda—bringing both honesty and sensible solutions for moving the country forward in these most uncertain of political times. Formerly a visiting lecturer in Political Science at the University of Wyoming – his alma mater – and formerly the director of the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, Simpson provides audiences with anecdotes, humor and cutting-edge commentary on politics, the media, Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid reform, the economy and much more. He enjoys taking questions from any audience.
