I.O.U.S.A. is a 2008 American documentary film directed by Patrick Creadon. The film focuses on the shape and impact of the United States national debt.
The film features Robert Bixby, director of the Concord Coalition, and David Walker, the former U.S. Comptroller-General, as they travel around the United States on a tour to let communities know of the potential dangers of the national debt.
The tour was carried out through the Concord Coalition, and was known as the “Fiscal Wake-Up Tour.” You can watch this 30 minute file on You Tube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_TjBNjc9Bo
YouCut is a program started by Republican Congressman and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in May 2010 to present ideas for potential cost-cutting bills to be presented to the House of Representatives of the United States, and to solicit feedback on those ideas from the general public.
The program consists of a website offering ideas for visitors to vote on, and presents video of congress members discussing the winning ideas on the House floor. This is the kind of action we need from our representatives.
