What Can You Do about the Debt Crisis?

You’ve probably heard this before: America is facing a serious debt crisis. Economists estimate that the unfunded liabilities for Social Security and Medicare amount to roughly $200 trillion. That’s about $400,000 per American.

 

Hearing staggering numbers like these, it’s easy to feel hopeless about the future. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to end in catastrophe. There is a way out.

 

In RooseveltCare: How Social Security Is Sabotaging the Land of Self-Reliance, ARI fellow Don Watkins offers a real solution to the debt crisis. From the back cover: “Don Watkins argues that the answer is as simple as it is controversial: Abolish the entitlement state, starting with the retirement program that created it.”

 

What can one do to help? Begin by educating yourself. Pick up a copy of RooseveltCare. It will provide you with the intellectual ammunition — the facts and arguments — you will need to effectively articulate the case for dismantling the entitlement state and restoring freedom.
