Coats, Brooks Meet with Indiana Chapter of Campaign to Fix the Debt
Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) and Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-Ind.) met Wednesday with leaders of the Indiana chapter of The Campaign to Fix the Debt, a non-partisan movement to put America on a better fiscal and economic path. Coats, Brooks and attendees discussed the need for a comprehensive plan to fix our long-term debt and deficit.
“Just as I have called for in Congress, The Campaign to Fix the Debt is urging people to put aside politics and join together to do what is necessary for the future of the country,” said Coats. “I applaud this group's efforts and look forward to working with its members in the coming months. Restoring our nation's fiscal house by getting control of our debt and deficit spending is the reason I returned to public service and is my top priority in the Senate.”
"Hoosiers from both political parties believe we should spend less and demonstrate a real commitment to balancing our federal checkbook," said Brooks. "This is the only way to get our economy back on track and preserve the American dream for our youngest generation. I applaud The Campaign to Fix the Debt for its work to raise awareness of the single biggest challenge facing our nation."
According to its website, The Campaign to Fix the Debt is “a non-partisan movement to put America on a better fiscal and economic path.” The Campaign is comprised of American citizens who “have come together from a variety 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 Indiana chapter was formed in January 2013.
