Topics of discussion included the federal budget, the national debt and deficit, and the tax policy has if affects small businesses and individuals.

Tiberi is deeply involved in tax reform as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, and as chairman of the Subcommitee on Select Revenue Measures, and says he wanted to hear from small business owners.  

He painted a bleak picture of sky-rocketing spending and a ballooning national debt.
