Reports the local ABC station of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s YAL:
Young Americans for Liberty, a student organization at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s Jackson County campus, will erect a 40-foot National Debt Clock at the walkway between the LRC building and the Science building.
The organization will also petition Congressman Steven Palazzo to come to the Gautier campus and address the $14 trillion national debt.
The organizers of the debt clock construction say if politicians do not tackle the upcoming debt crisis, our generation will suffer grave consequences.
After seeing our story on WLOX.com, Congressman Palazzo emailed us the following statement:
“It is refreshing to see college students interested in such a critical issue. Like these students, I recognize that unless serious changes are made, our country may soon be bankrupt,” Palazzo wrote.
“Ronald Reagan once referred to America as a ‘shining city upon a hill’ – a beacon of light to the world. Unfortunately, that light is being dimmed by a darkening cloud of debt. This crisis was decades in the making and it will take time to correct it,” Palazzo continued.
