"The Moment of Truth" or the Simpson-Bowles Report by the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, Circa 2010
“Enact the Plan” is a grass roots social welfare civic organization created for the purpose of educating the public about the Simpson-Bowles Plan (“the Plan”). Enacting the Plan would benefit all of America by reducing the national debt, which is for the common good and general welfare of the citizens of the United States.
“Enact the Plan” was launched by Timothy J. Pagliara in Franklin, Tennessee. The National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform (Simpson-Bowles) is a bipartisan group commissioned by President Obama in 2010 to study the nation’s fiscal challenges and recommend solutions. The group met for 8 months in 2010, studying reams of cold, hard data and concluded that America is on an unsustainable fiscal path. The Simpson-Bowles Plan (“the Plan”) is the nickname for the published report of the above named Commission.
Anyone may join this grass roots social welfare effort and help spread the information found by the Commission and the plan it created. “Enact the Plan” has developed a web-site (enacttheplan.org) which provides access to the Plan and a simplified version of the Plan so Americans can better understand it; and suggests steps they can take to voice their concern. A series of ads in public newspapers and magazines beginning the summer of 2012 should drive attention to the web-site and Report. Enact the Plan asks citizens to contact their local legislators and encourage them to support enacting the Plan.
