Our Mission

FixUS seeks to better understand the root causes of our nation’s growing  divisions and deteriorating political system, to work with others to bring attention to these issues and the need to fix them, and to build support for necessary changes. We are part of a coalition of individuals and organizations with diverse perspectives, united in a shared concern over the state of our country, and committed to make healing our fractured nation and fixing the system a top national priority. FixUS is a project of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget and Fix the Debt.

Our Challenge

Our nation is threatened by a growing cultural divide, a paralyzed political system, and deteriorating support for our core institutions. Our political system is increasingly unable to solve problems and reach bipartisan compromise. The deterioration has reached a point that we are losing  trust and faith in our politicians, our institutions, and each other. As a result, our nation may be divided to an extent that we are losing a sense of shared aspirations, ambitions, values, and the belief that there is more that unites us than divides us.

Our Core Principles

  • Healing our divided nation is the defining challenge of our time 
  • Extremism on both sides of the political divide is leading America into a deepening crisis 
  • A revitalized citizenry is the key to fixing our broken political  system, and preparing the nation to face serious challenges ahead 
  • We value compromise over conflict, discussion over divisiveness, and progress over partisanship 
  • Americans share a common destiny; working together, we can secure a  future of freedom, justice, and prosperity for future generations

Our Work

FixUS leverages the experience and network of the Campaign to Fix the Debt to help bring new visibility and supporters to a budding movement for political system change. 


FixUS will be rolling out during the first part of 2019. Its first initiative is the FixUS Nationwide Roadshow & Listening Tour, which is traveling the country to better understand how citizens feel about the troubled state of politics and what may be causing our divisions. By speaking before and engaging with local audiences around the country, the tour’s goal is to help encourage broader national and local conversation about the need to fix our political system and possible solutions. 


Additional FixUS initiatives include working with thought leaders to craft a national narrative on the root causes of what is pulling the country apart and how we can forge a path forward; partnering with a global polling firm to better understand our root anxieties, our national values and possible solutions; and forming a network of  former government officials, and business and civic leaders to engage in events, media, and other tactics to draw attention to these issues during the 2020 election cycle.

Fix US Roadshow

The FixUS Nationwide Roadshow & Listening Tour is engaging numerous local audiences around the country - in civic and business groups, community forums, young professional and student groups and others - to better understand what citizens think, value and believe is causing heightened levels of political division. Speakers  discuss the root causes of our national problems like the debt and  others, and educate on the need to come together around possible  solutions. Modeled after an effort launched as part of the Campaign to Fix the Debt, the tour is partnering with affinity organizations to engage the public and encourage broader local and national conversation on the deteriorating state of our political system and the existence of possible solutions.
