Few topics in today's divided political landscape spark as much passion as how the government spends money. Widespread disapproval and a fiscal crisis have given rise to the tea party movement, which just celebrated its one-year anniversary.
If you fall on the red side of the partisan divide, you're liable to see current government spending as dangerous. If you fall on the blue side of the partisan divide, you're more likely to see the tea party movement itself as a danger. Common ground is becoming increasingly hard to find.
On March 23, The Village Square – a nonprofit dedicated to the value of civil discourse between people with different opinions - hopes to host a bridge-building conversation across this gaping divide.
This program is part of the "Dinner at the Square" season The Year of Living Dangerously: Tackling America's Big Ugly Partisan Controversies. Find information about the season generally and the other dinner programs HERE.
