It's Time to Get Serious
Our national debt is approaching $15 trillion dollars and federal deficits are projected at or above one trillion dollars a year for the foreseeable future. Despite the emerging bipartisan consensus among policy makers that we cannot sustain the current path, they are struggling to find common ground on a plan to reduce the federal deficit. Without some change in these dynamics, their deliberations may not reflect the seriousness and urgency of the need to effectively act. American business has an opportunity to help convey the need for immediate action and ultimately shape the outcome by:
1. Educating your employees on the seriousness of this issue; and,
2. Asking them to write Congress and say that the time for action is now.
