Under the Dome

Fix the Debt group is airing North Carolina web ad

The North Carolina Chapter of Fix the Debt has released its first web ad that seeks to put pressure on Congress to reduce the deficits.

The ad features a family going over a budget with an accountant, with expenditures far in excess of income and a mounting debt.

"Folks in North Carolina know that they can't operate a family budget by spending so much more than they take in year after year, so why has it taken years of deficit spending for leaders in Washington to figure this out," said Zach Smathers, a North Carolina steering member and founder of Clarity Technology Group.

"The ad applies family accounting to the federal budget and clearly lays out the fact that an American family couldn't survive for very long spending so much more than they take in,'' he said.
