My Message to Washington


After 5 long weeks, the Generational Equity tour will roll into Washington, D.C. having made 25 stops across America reaching thousands of young americans in the process. At each stop we have been collecting the signed messages of Millennials demanding congress address our fiscal future instead of continuing to kick the can on our generation. 

Each message we collect is slapped onto one of 1500 shiny cans. On October 31st, your message will be presented at the US Capitol sending a message loud and clear to Washington, "The Can Stops Here."

Sign your message to congress below to add your voice to the hundreds who have already signed.

*For more information or questions on the event, email Blake Wright at
Join the event on Facebook.

What is your message to our leaders in Washington? Finish this sentence: Washington should stop kicking the can down the road because... Be sure to sign with your name and home district.

“Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best state, is a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer.” – Thomas Paine

the future of this nation depends on it. Decisions made by men and women whom I’ll never personally meet are solidifying a fate that our youth will be buried under. This is no longer about politics and horn blowing, about democrat and republican, this is about being human.

It quiet hard time when you don’t have any job to do after competing your study. Youngsters are not getting as mush attention as they should be for selecting their career.

Our representatives act like Nero – fiddling while Rome burned. Are there any adults there?

Unfunded liabilities of $70 trillion are unsustainable.

you can no longer afford to be myopic. If you can’t focus on non-partisan politics to resolve the spending problem our county has, then please think about your children and grandchildren personally. Not just the concept of people at those ages, but your own flesh and blood. Will they be able to look back at you and be proud of you? That your sole achievement was that you stood strong with your party and weren’t amenable to reach across and compromise. You aren’t going to have a legacy to leave them. What they will be left with is shame.

Nooooo RED INK. Stop kicking the can down the road because future generations should not be in bondage to former generations spending.

Every great nation this world has ever seen, eventually was plagued with political corruption; our country is no different. We are in a down hill spiral. We need to stand up for what is right and make our government responsible for it’s actions. Let us stand together and make our country great again.

reduce spending, raise taxes, pay off our debt!!
commented 2013-10-28 17:35:24 -0400
I’m worried my 3 boys will not be able to create the quality of life they have grown-up with, because their government is so financially in debt, overloaded with Medicare, Social Security, outdated programs like pensions, unsuccessful programs and entitlements. I don’t see a way out for my kids, and how they are going to support families in the future. I’m truly scared for them. I do not trust our leadership right now.
commented 2013-10-28 15:39:56 -0400
my children will pay the price of your inaction. Entitlement spending is going to increase at a parabolic rate over the next 20 years. These liabilities need to be moved on balance sheet so we can begin to address the deficit now. The longer we wait, the bigger the problem.

Anything doc farmer says is guaranteed to be full of shit. Ignore the cowardly bastard who won’t use his real name.

The size of the debt seems to most as a thing which can be negotiated and controlled. However, there is an aspect of the debt that is beyond U.S. control . That is the current interest on the $17 trillion of present debt. The sum is $35 billion per month. As a measuring point, in 2006, the monthly interest was $18.8 billion per month. However, interest on the 10 year bond was 5.75% in 2006. Today, the 10 year bond is 2.75%. The Federal reserve owns 61% of current debt. It must stop buying U.S. debt at some time. When that happens, interest rates will climb to normal historical levels. If today’s present debt were priced at 5.75%, the monthly payment needed to avoid true default would be require $70 billion per month or $840 billion per year. We do not control global interest rates. China has taken a decision to move away from the dollar as the international currency for trade. It has signed agreements with Australia, Britain and Russia. Second, the federal reserve has benefitted from the Euro disaster. If the EU shows signs of recovery in 2014, global fund manager will begin buying Euro debt at >5%, and abandon U.S. treasury debt. At that time, we will be out of control. The good news is there are solutions to reduce current debt, raise employment without touching the delivery of entitlements.

America wasn’t founded on copouts. It’s time to take responsibility, stop finding temporary fixes, focus, and TAKE CARE OF OUR COUNTRY

washington must spend no more then they take in. We need a balanced budget and a flat tax that is fair for all Americans.

The more we put off doing something about the waste and spending, the more it grows. We have to stop it now!

Washington should stop kicking the can down the road because it is a dead end! You can’t keep writing checks that our country can’t cash. Finance 101 – only spend what you earn. We need to balance the budget and not live beyond our means; for the future of our children and beyond. Either clean up our finances or we the people will clean our political house (Congress and Senate). We will vote all incumbents out of office regardless of their political affiliation.

Kicking the can down the road even further doesn’t resolve anything. It creates more debt which this country doesn’t need nor can handle. AMERICA IS BROKE! Enough is enough, Washington D.C.
commented 2013-10-18 21:52:46 -0400
Our leaders DO NOT CARE about the debt and the effect it is going to have on our youth. I am older but I do not want my young adult children or my grandchildren living in a socialist, debt burdened country. If America’s youth don’t take an interest and a stance we have no hope. I am proud to join with you to save America from collapse. I will pass the information about The Can Kicks Back to my friends and family. There are many who are interest in being a part of this movement.

Will the REAL Americans, Democrats and Republicans please stand up? Get a backbone. Use it!!! We the people elected you to do the will of the people. When are you going to start? How many of us have told you to balance the budget? Cut spending? GET RID of The affordable healthcare act? Anyone with a brain can see that it IS NOT AFFORDABLE! The time has come for all YOU can kickers to Shape up or go home. STOP kicking the can down the road OR we start sending all you phoney pretenders back home. Choice is yours. Shape up or go home and let us put in people that will follow the CONSTITUTION!


Let’s git er done! Verva Thomas

Spending wildly and not making smart decisions for the future is a bad way to run the economy. Our representatives need to stand up for the PEOPLE and not all the lobbyists or others that bully them into making bad decisions for America.
commented 2013-10-18 09:13:17 -0400
the spending is killing America. We need to reduce federal spending by reducing all federal agencies via attrition to not cause more unemployment back to levels that don’t cause all federal spending to exceed 18% of the GDP. Mark Levin defines this in The Liberty Amendments. Also Rand Paul has identified a way to payoff the National Debt by using 1 cent of every federal dollar spent to pay down the debt. This will eliminate it in 5 years. We also need to repeal ObamaCare and use the health care changes suggested by Ben Carson in America the Beautiful. He is a doctor and has some excellent health care ideas.

Washington’s idea of “Business as Usual” is CRIPPLING America. ENOUGH! We The People DEMAND our Constitutional Rights be returned.
