Our leaders debate over the austerity level inflicted upon us. Yet a simple piece of legislation:

  • Pays off the national debt as it comes due, without deficit spending.
  • Repairs the nation's crumbling infrastructure.
  • Creates 7 million jobs.
  • Pays every American a citizen's dividend that could be $10,000, giving small businesses what they need: customers with money.
  • Provides debt-free funds to state governments. Indiana's would be about $1.5 billion/year.
  • Provides interest-free, infrastructure loans to local governments.

H.R. 2990, The National Emergency Employment Defense Act simply:

  • Incorporates the Federal Reserve into the Treasury Department.
  • Changes bank accounting rules so they only lend money they actually have.
  • Creates debt-free U.S. money in a non-inflation/deflationary amount for the needs of our nation.

Contact U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky and Sens. Joe Donnelly and Dan Coats to enlist their support.
