Congress's Next Play: Don't Punt, Go For It!

Dec 2, 2013 | Budgets & Projections

We hope all of our readers enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday. The long weekend brought some fantastic rivalry games, Michigan-Ohio State, Auburn-Alabama, Ravens-Steelers, and many more. Coaches often had to decide whether to punt or to go for it and keep the drive alive. But in Washington, where Congress has had clear opportunities to get our fiscal house in order, a new Fix the Debt infographic shows lawmakers have been doing much more punting than solving.

We still have a ways to go before we can consider our fiscal problems solved and it will only become harder the longer we wait. Tell Congress - stop punting, go for it.
