Dear Friend,


America is bankrupt. The recent debt ceiling deal has failed to address the long-term fiscal solvency of the United States. What is more, the American people are being kept in the dark about the real numbers by politicians in Washington. When unfunded liabilities such as Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are accounted for, the real national debt is over $60 trillion -- this is fiscally unsustainable now, and even worse for our future.

The mission of Truth in Government

remains to strengthen our country's

financial foundation by promoting

fiscal responsibility, accountability and

transparency in Congressional budgeting, spending and financial reporting. Please join me in this effort! I ask you to consider supporting the mission of Truth in Government by making a secure contribution today. Any donation is greatly appreciated!

Resetting the Clock on a Ticking 'Time Bomb' -- 
America's National Debt

On Friday, July 29, former Congressman Joe DioGuardi addressed the National Convention of College Republicans in Washington, D.C. DioGuardi emphasized the fact that when all of the federal government's liabilities are accounted for, America's real debt is over $60 trillion. In addition, DioGuardi called on young Americans to understand the full dimension of the fiscal crisis that threatens our country today and in the future. Finally, DioGuardi made clear that increasing the debt ceiling has done nothing to avoid economic catastrophe; it has merely "reset the clock" on a 'ticking time bomb' -- our national debt.

DioGuardi reveals the over $50 trillion in unrecorded liabilities for entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Finally, DioGuardi argues that the debt ceiling deal has merely reset the clock on a ticking 'time bomb' -- our national debt.
