Excerpt

Presented by the Concord Coalition and sponsored by Fix the Debt Louisiana, this nonpartisan "Debt Busters" exercise helped high school students understand our nation's debt and make decisions about the budget as if they were Members of Congress.

"Opportunities to present to groups like LYS allow participants to learn the basics of budget reform as they encounter the same tough choices that make solving the deficit so difficult," said Phil Smith, facilitator and National Political Director of the Concord Coalition.
