The recent explosion in spending is no secret. The government has already pledged more than $4 trillion in its attempt to solve this economic crisis—more than the cost of World War II. As though that’s not enough, the government has committed to spend trillions more over the next few years, which will bring the grand total to a staggering $12 trillion in new spending. That’s more than 24 times the size of the New Deal.
But lost in all these colossal figures and vast amounts of debt are the consequences endured by average Americans, both today and especially tomorrow.
We hope http://www.StopSpendingOurFuture.org can give such ordinary Americans a chance to speak out. The Tea Parties were a good beginning, but it can't stop there.
With the month of April coming to a close, there are just a few days left to enter one of the Stop Spending Our Future contests. We've had some great video entries, but we're hoping to get a few more before the April 30 deadline.
In addition to the $500 video contest, we're also giving away prize money for people who 1) write a letter that your child, grandchild, or great-grandchild will open 30 years from now, 2) give this over-spending a name using 10 words or less, and 3) tell the story of a Taxpayer Tea Party. You can find out all the details at http://www.StopSpendingOurFuture.org.
