Before Christmas, my wife Kathy alerted me to a website that's doing their best to educate citizens about the burgeoning US National Debt.
The website is called OweNo.com. It's a pretty clever name indeed.
I copied the first two paragraphs from their About Us page to give you a snapshot of what they're about:
"OweNo is a national public awareness campaign whose mission is to educate Americans about the causes and consequences of the projected growth in federal debt levels and engage them in a national movement to address these important fiscal challenges.
America faces a growing crisis -- our $13.6 trillion federal debt is expected to grow to astonishing levels in future years, threatening the economic health of our nation, and particularly our nation's most vulnerable citizens and the next generation who will inherit our debt. But if we act now to put together a plan for our fiscal future - and if we work together across party lines to implement it - we can start to fix the problem, live within our means and create a better nation for our kids."
I urge you to get on to their newsletter list so you get periodic emails about news, announcements and any initiatives. They seem like they know what they're talking about.
