Thanks to Americans like you, our effort to promote common sense solutions to the impending "fiscal cliff" is picking up steam. We have hundreds of thousands of citizens, business leaders, and former public officials behind this movement.
But because this is a CITIZEN powered movement, we need as many people behind this campaign as we can get! Without a groundswell of support from the public, a majority of our elected officials do not seem prepared to make the hard decisions necessary to achieve a long-term, comprehensive solution to our nation's fiscal problems.
