Larsen holds telephone town hall on debt limit, deficit July 19

U.S. Rep Rick Larsen wants to give voters an opportunity to chat with him about current economic issues, and although it won't be face-to-face, it will be voice-to-voice.

Larsen's telephone town hall will focus on the debt limit debate and the work he's doing to tackle the nation's debt and deficit problem. He'll host the call from his office in Washington, D.C., starting at 5:55 p.m. Pacific Time on July 19, and he's invited his constituents from across the 2nd Congressional District to take part by sharing their thoughts and asking questions about those issues.

"The impact of defaulting on bills that America is committed to paying is too great," Larsen said. "If the President and Congress fail to avoid default before the Aug. 2 deadline, it will hurt our economy and middle-class families in northwest Washington."

Larsen looks forward to hearing from his constituents on how to find meaningful deficit reduction and avoid default.

The free call-in number for constituents wishing to take part in the telephone town hall is 1-877-229-8493, code 18502.
