Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget

In a recent op-ed in TIME, Michael A. Peterson, the president and CEO of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, outlined why millennials need the next president to be worried about the debt.
Peterson argues the fiscal policies of the next president will have the greatest impact on the single largest American generation, which could face less economic opportunity, less earning power, and be less able to pay back student loans, buy a home, or start a business as a result of a high national debt.
