End the European Bailouts Today (Live!)

House Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence and Conference Vice-Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers have been speaking out for weeks against the U.S. helping to bailout Greece. Pence has noted that “future Americans may be picking up the tab for as much as $50 billion in additional loan guarantees for the rest of Europe in the form of a bailout.”

McMorris Rodgers recently published an op/ed with National Review Online, with this powerful line:

At a time when America is experiencing its worst economy in 30 years and is burdened by a $1.4 trillion deficit, U.S. taxpayers should not be forced to prop up failed socialist policies in relatively wealthy European nations.

Today, the GOP is speaking out louder than ever before on this issue. The two representatives will be part of “End the Bailouts: A Greek Forum,” an event featuring Members of Congress and economic experts who will speak to this very issue. If you are interested, you can watch it live here or embed the U-Stream in your own blog. They’ve also got Senator Jim DeMint on tap to speak, which adds a nice bicameral effect to the whole shindig. The live stream is embedded below as well. Enjoy!
