“Haven’t heard of First Budget? You would if you attended candidates’ events in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina or other early caucus and primary states... Its members are pressing, politely but relentlessly, for answers about America’s perilous finances from the men and women who would be our 45th president.” – Chicago Tribune
First Budget is a joint nonpartisan initiative of The Concord Coalition and the Campaign to Fix the Debt. The initiative will raise public awareness of the dangers posed by the nation’s unsustainable budget policies and make solving this problem a high priority for the 2016 presidential candidates. Our effort starts with the early nominating contests in Iowa and New Hampshire and will bring together volunteers, business leaders, students and others to deliver an emphatic message of fiscal and generational responsibility to presidential candidates, the media, and voters.
