Fiscal Friday – Immigration Reform

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Last night, President Obama announced an executive order to allow millions of illegal immigrants to stay in America. Regardless your immigration stance, it’s important to understand the funding of this major change.

Please watch the video above and tell me what you think. Should this be a Mandatory spending program? Where will the money come from?

I’m just one girl who loves her country, so I’m asking questions.

$17 Trillion is Unpatriotic

Sunday, July 6th, 2014

On July 3, 2008, then presidential candidate Barack Obama said leaving a generation $9 trillion in debt is irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic. With our national debt now over $17 trillion, I took to the streets for A Generation Empowered to ask Americans, “Is $17 trillion in debt patriotic or unpatriotic, and why?”

Everyone I spoke with agreed $17 trillion in debt is unpatriotic. Whether it’s China buying our debt, the inability to support our homeless or our veterans, irresponsible spending by politicians or the enormity of our debt, Americans on all sides of the political aisle agreed our national debt is unpatriotic. Even the two people who felt some debt is patriotic, agreed $17 trillion is way too much.

I planned to write a formal blog about A Generation Empowered, but I guess this is it…

To leave a generation $17.5 trillion in debt, and growing, is wrong. Our generation didn’t create this crisis, but it’s up to us to solve it. The politicians today will be gone tomorrow. Soon we will be political leaders. The national debt isn’t a liberal or conservative issue, it’s an American issue. Whether you’re a creative soul, business owner, corporate employee or stay-at-home parent, the national debt impacts us all. It’s time Americans come together and take action.

If you agree that leaving a generation trillions in debt is wrong, check out A Generation Empowered (AGE). Finally, there’s a mouthpiece for Millennials (actually all Americans) in this debt fiasco. Apathy is out, activism is in. They say one person can’t make a difference, but with almost 75 million American Millennials, we have the power to make our voice heard. This is our generation, our future, and we have the power to change it.

Make sure to follow AGE on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and YouTube for all the latest in national debt news. We’re still in the developmental stages, but have lots of exciting things in the works. Also, if you’re a creative soul and want to volunteer your talents, message me!
