House Budget Committee Ranking Member Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., and Budget Committee Vice Chairman Tom Price, R-Ga., plan to discuss the latest on sequestration, the fiscal cliff and the budget at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, at a National Press Club Newsmaker.

The lawmakers plan to discuss the latest budget deadlines and approaches that could avoid the next potential fiscal crisis. They also plan to discuss how Congress and the White House can avoid recurring fiscal crises by additional program cuts, while not removing benefits from people who need them. They also are expected to address the potential roles and timing of additional revenues and tax reform versus program cuts, including public concerns about Social Security and Medicare.
