    in cities and towns across the country, each
    with a randomly recruited representative
    sample of 35-45 participants. These
    intense sessions focused on the kind of
    America participants want to see for
    themselves and their children, the role
    they want the Federal government to play
    in realizing that future, and the tradeoffs
    they are prepared to make to achieve those​

    ends in four specific areas: Medicare/​

    Social Security; defense; other federal​

    activities; and taxes/debt.​

    reached a strikingly similar set of conclusions:"​
