The US national debt is out of control


Pass the Balanced Budget Amendment is a 501(c)(4) tax exempt entity, formed in 2009, that is engaged in public education regarding the ticking time-bomb of our mounting debt.

What we are targeting

The unsustainability of Federal entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare

The perniciousness of large and growing public-sector debt at all levels

The unprecedented underfunding of local, state and Federal public employee pensions

trivia & demographics

You could wrap $1 bills around the Earth 77,379 times with our amount of debt!

If you were to lay $1 bills on top of each other, they would form a stack 2,170,88 km or 1,348,926 miles high!

Our national debt stack of dollar bills would reach the equivalent of 5.65 trips to the Moon!
