Veterans for a Strong America

Yesterday America hit a new low: the U.S. national debt surpassed $16 Trillion.

To mark this dangerous milestone, Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) released a new web video this morning that highlights the threat to U.S. security posed by our nation’s debt, and calls on Washington to enact real spending reform that reduces the debt and protects the nation’s future.

The 90-second web video, titled “16 Trillion”, focuses on repeated warnings from national leaders (including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, former Joint Chiefs Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen, and Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin) about how mounting government debt endangers our national security. The video also urges Congress to focus on entitlement spending reform and pro-growth tax policies to spur the economy and reduce the national debt.

It’s time for leaders in Washington to put aside the political games and get to work reforming government spending and bringing the debt under control.
