President Obama to address Business Roundtable

Nov 30, 2012

The White House has just announced that President Obama will travel to the Business Roundtable offices next Wednesday, Dec. 5, to give remarks and meet with BRT-member CEOs.

About 100 chief executives are expected to attend the BRT's CEO Quarterly meeting. Also on the agenda are House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who will speak at a dinner Tuesday. Negotiations over the fiscal cliff and America's long-term fiscal stability will undoubtedly dominate the discussions.

BRT-member CEOs have emerged as national leaders in calling on Washington to avert the fiscal cliff, that is, the higher taxes and drastic across-the-board cuts from sequestration that would result from inaction. BRT's "It's Time to Act" campaign features CEOs making the economic and fiscal case in their own words.

BRT's CEO meetings are closed. However, in this case, the President will be accompanied by the White House press pool, who will report on his public remarks.

The President last spoke to Business Roundtable in March. The White House has posted those remarks here.
