The American University College Democrats and College Republicans are teaming up on a bipartisan campaign to raise awareness about our nation’s dire fiscal situation. Decades of fiscal irresponsibility by our elected officials have left us with a $16.3 trillion national debt that, if left unaddressed, is projected to continue on a path of unchecked growth. If we continue to kick the can down the road and avoid making the tough choices here and now, our generation will be left with debt and interest payments so large that they will crowd out our ability to make critical investments in education, infrastructure, and scientific research. Now is the time for us to take action and demand fiscal responsibility! Check out UpToUsAU.org to get involved.
