About the Campaign

Fix the Debt is a nonpartisan organization that is educating Americans about rising national debt and how it will affect all of us. It is a project of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget


We are mobilizing Americans from all backgrounds to urge policymakers to work together on a comprehensive solution that includes bipartisan government spending and tax reform.


U.S. debt is at its highest level since just after World War II. Record federal budget deficits mean the debt will soon rise higher than it has ever been as a share of the economy.


Debt at such levels will slow the growth of the economy and wages, make it more difficult to responds to challenges like a recession, and increase the likelihood of a fiscal crisis.


It is time to Fix the Debt: We Owe it to the Future.
