As political campaigns shift into high gear and take over media coverage and national discussions, the Fix the Debt campaign has been able to break through and get noticed.
David Wessel, Wall Street Journal Global Economics Editor, noted the important work of the Fix the Debt campaign in an article yesterday. He highlighted the substantial amount of energy and involvement the campaign has garnered from both grasstops and grassroots supporters in just a couple of months, while ‘quietly building’ a powerful and effective campaign.
