Just ran across this new site located at www.StudentsForRyan.com that deserves a look. Although I’m no longer in school, I highly encourage any students to sign the letter. I’ve included a small snippet of the excellent letter below, but be sure to visit the site and leave your information.
Dear Congressman Ryan,
We, the undersigned, are students and other young people concerned with the fiscal state of the America we are inheriting. Piling debts, looming default, rumors of a great stagnation, and the nearing bankruptcy of our social safety net have jilted us from the apathy that too often characterizes our generation’s political disposition. We know inertia is not a policy.
You have put forward the best plan to date at reconciling the tough road ahead. We believe stewardship of our republic will require sacrifice, especially on the part of those who, like us, will have time to adjust to the new social compact. We are willing to make those sacrifices because every other way is tougher. We know we will not have the hefty defined benefit packages our grandparents have received—we just want our leaders to level with us and pursue serious reform.
