Americans who are concerned about the nation’s fiscal difficulties have a good opportunity to voice their opinions through a grassroots competition put together by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, according to a new blog post by The Concord Coalition’s Stefan Byrd-Krueger.
The foundation is soliciting videos from people across the country that tell why fixing the national debt is critical to our future. The two best videos will each receive a $500 prize.
