Ask for a Plan

At $19 trillion and growing, the national debt is threatening to harm our economy. In just over a decade, interest on the debt will become our third largest federal program — crowding out investments in critical programs like education, infrastructure, and R&D. But there's still time to secure our future.

This election season the Peterson Foundation encouraged voters to reach out to candidates to ask them for their fiscal plans. The integrated campaign included digital, radio, and television ads (see videos below). As a result, more than 80,000 tweets and emails were sent to candidates.
