One of our primary missions at Ending Spending is to educate the American people on the dangers of the coming fiscal crisis.
As we have said repeatedly, the United States now faces the most predictable economic crisis in our history. For the fourth straight year, the federal government will run a trillion-dollar-plus budget deficit. Our entitlement programs are in desperate need of reform. Recent projections issued by the Congressional Budget Office forecast that U.S. public debt will reach 70 percent of our nation’s gross domestic product by the end of the year – the highest since shortly after the end of World War II.
This much is clear: It’s time for a return to common sense. But don’t just take our word for it…
Using the most up-to-date data, two top economists from the University of Southern California have authored The Fiscal Cliff, a nuts-and-bolts primer for the real story of our nation’s debt crisis.
We hope you will let us know what you think about the book by leaving a comment on this post. Most importantly, please visit our Action Center to let your elected officials in Washington know you want them to act immediately to prevent us from falling off… the fiscal cliff.
