The Can Kicks Back (TCKB) is a non-partisan, Millennial-driven campaign to fix the national debt and reclaim our American Dream.
Young Americans have the most to lose if Washington keeps kicking the can down the road, and our future along with it. We believe it's time we kick back and demand a solution to our $17 trillion and growing national debt.
To achieve a “grand bargain” that puts our country on a sustainable fiscal path, the calculus among elected officials must change so that the political cost of cooperating and taking action is less than bickering and delaying action.
To this end, TCKB educates, organizes and mobilizes young Americans to pressure elected officials to achieve a bold, generationally balanced and bipartisan deficit reduction agreement.
