National Child Abuse Month: Inter-generational Plunder?

April is National Child Abuse Month, and I am asking my friends to do three things: (1) think of deficit spending as fiscal child abuse, (2) get the term “inter-generational equity” into the conversation and (3) hold elected representatives to a pay-down-the-debt position with no new borrowing. My congressman gives this issue minimal attention, and he can do far better.

Call your congressman today and insist that borrowing our children head-over-heels into debt is indefensible, and say that you will not stand for it.
