Help with a speech topic

I am giving a speech in my class, and i want to do it on the topics referred to in the crash course. But in this speech you have to argue 3 "expert" views using point, counter point arguement. Basically taking a view from the opposing side from one of the experts and ripping it to shreds. However it can't be a "predicition" It has to be something that has happened or happening. My main focus was going to be on the debt, since this speech is only 7 minutes long and I was wondering if anyone had any good quotes that I could possibly use to debate in class or ideas I could draw from. Thanks.

You may want to counter Mr. Orszag, Doug. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/25/us/politics/25text-orszag.html?_r=2&pa...

Correct spelling of "argument"

I will be your antagonist. You start arguing the CC and I will counterpoint. By the time we are done, you will have a speech.....Smile
