The Campaign to Fix the Debt is a non-partisan movement to put America on a better fiscal and economic path that has been at the heart of the ongoing national debate about the federal debt and deficit. We come from a range of social, economic and political perspectives, around the common belief that America's growing federal debt threatens our future and that we must address it. The Campaign will mobilize key communities - including leaders from business, government, and policy - and people all across America who want to see elected officials step up to solve our nation's fiscal challenges.
