Fix The Debt Launches "Debt Deniers" Initiative

WASHINGTON, Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, the Campaign to Fix the Debt – a nonpartisan coalition of business, government, and policy leaders and more than 360,000 citizens dedicated to urging federal lawmakers to forge a plan to solve our nation's debt problems – launched a website that debunks the myths spun by "Debt Deniers."

A growing chorus of "Debt Deniers" has emerged in recent months. will expose the most dangerous Deniers and counter their claims with facts and data. also outlines the grim reality of what will happen if Washington chooses to ignore our ballooning national debt.

"In recent weeks, a small constituency of Debt Deniers has taken to the airwaves to wrongfully decry the urgency and importance of the nation's debt situation," said Jon Romano, Vice President of Communications for the Campaign to Fix the Debt. "Ignoring the debt and pretending it doesn't exist will not solve the nation's fiscal crisis. Many top economists agree: if we do not take major action to alter the trajectory of our debt now, future economic growth could be in serious jeopardy."

The Campaign to Fix the Debt is a non-partisan movement asking lawmakers to work together on legislation large enough to stabilize and reduce the national debt as a share of the economy. Members come from a broad range of social, economic and political perspectives with the belief that America's growing debt burden threatens our future, and that we must address it now. The Campaign is mobilizing 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.
