In one of their first emails to Fix the Debt supporters, Al Simpson and Erskine Bowles said they ultimately chose to endorse this campaign for one reason: their grandkids.
Our kids may only be knee high but they're already knee-deep in debt. Motherhood was an important theme in Tampa this week, so in Tampa on Thursday, the Fix the Debt team decided to ask women voters and delegates why addressing today’s fiscal crisis is so critical to tomorrow’s generation.
Fix the Debt volunteers talked to women of all stripes - moms and not. Here’s what they had to say:
We have a choice: Leaders in Washington can put their partisanship and politics aside and Fix the Debt, or we can let our children shoulder the legacy of an $11 trillion debt.
Fixing the debt is not simply a cause or a tagline – it’s about making tough, but brave and vital choices. More than 130,000 Americans are leading the way. Thank you for your ongoing support. On to Charlotte!
