The Citizen's Petition to Fix the Debt

America is more than $16 trillion in debt, creating a catastrophic threat to our security and economy.

Thankfully, we can prevent disaster and renew economic strength. Add your name to join Americans everywhere in demanding that your leaders in Washington FIX the DEBT:

By signing the Fix the Debt petition we are telling Congress and the President:

The Time To Act Is Now
Immediate action must be taken to reverse the ballooning debt. Congress and the President have deferred this decision too long. The upcoming “fiscal cliff” provides an opportunity to replace the drastic, automatic tax hikes and spending cuts with a gradual and intelligent plan. The principles of the Campaign to Fix the Debt provide guidance on how to move forward.

America’s Debt Is Unsustainable
The United States’ debt is over $16 trillion, and growing by more than $1 trillion per year. Mounting debt will lead to higher interest rates, lower wage growth, and an eventual economic crisis.

A Solution Must Address All Parts of the Budget
Any realistic solution to our budget problems must cut out wasteful and low priority spending, must slow the growth of unsustainable entitlement costs, and must simplify the tax code and eliminate loopholes through pro-growth and revenue-positive tax reform. The bipartisan proposal from the Simpson-Bowles National Commission On Fiscal Responsibility and Reform should serve as a starting point for a plan to reduce the federal debt by more than $4 trillion over ten years.

Protect America’s Core Values
Fixing the Debt must be phased in gradually to protect the fragile economic recovery, improve economic growth and prosperity, and protect our most vulnerable.

Find Common Ground
Put rigid ideologies aside. Pivotal moments in America’s history have not been overcome by one party acting alone. This is such a moment, and any solution must be bipartisan.

Put National Interest Ahead of Special Interests
A solution will require some sacrifice from all Americans; no special interest is exempt. We are willing to do our part and accept tough choices that affect us personally as part of a comprehensive plan in which everyone contributes their fair share. We want to make the country we love stronger. We want to Fix the Debt.
