This Fiscal Friday, we're keeping it short for the holidays. A little less Fiscal, a little more Friday. Today I’ll address the top three questions I get regarding A Generation Empowered.
1. What is A Generation Empowered? A Generation Empowered is a single-issue, bipartisan nonprofit committed to educating Americans about the increasing national debt. That's right, no social issues! In today’s divisive political climate, it’s time Americans unite around a common cause. Trillions in debt hurts us all.
2. What do you wish to accomplish? A Generation Empowered aims to create a movement of millions of Americans who agree, trillions in debt is unacceptable. If the media won’t report on it, and we can’t count on politicians (remember that CRomnibus bill?), we’ll represent your voice and voices have strength in numbers.
3. How can I help? This is my favorite question. It’s as easy as visiting A Generation Empowered. org. Click “I Agree.” Sign up for our email list. We promise, no spam and no selling your info. Joining our group shows you're committed to the cause. Are you creative, or just passionate about the national debt? We’re always looking for volunteers, whether it’s designing fliers or helping to spread the word. I can’t do this alone, and your help matters.
Before we go, I’d like to send out a heartfelt thank you. A Generation Empowered launches in January, but the feedback from family, friends and followers is overwhelming. Your words of encouragement only motivate me more. I truly believe we have the power to change politics. If Millennials voted, we’d comprise 40 percent of the vote. We’re the future of politics, so the time for action is now. This is Bess Byers, signing out. Let’s make our generation, a generation empowered.
