Help Us

Unlike the federal government, we can’t print more money or borrow from foreign governments to sustain our efforts to educate Americans about the size and consequences of the federal debt. We rely on people like you to help us keep our ads on the air and our research up to date. For every $1,000 we collect in donations, we can reach 100,000 people with our ads. Please help today.

Our programs:

  • Understanding the Debt

    Few Americans fully comprehend the size of the federal debt. They might know it’s “large,” but few really grasp the difference between a million, a billion, and a trillion—let alone the many trillions we owe foreign countries like China, Russia, and Saudi Arabia.

  • Solving the Debt Disaster Can’t Wait

    Many nations have been devastated by unexpected debt crises. We have the advantage of foresight, but we can’t afford to wait for action.

Our goal is to educate Americans about the need to deal honestly with out debt now, before it’s too late.

We’ve passed the buck for too long—all $15 trillion of them. At this point we’re not mortgaging our children’s future. We’re mortgaging our own.
