Alan Simpson is not only co-chairman of a presidential fiscal commission whose leaders offered a way out of the nation’s deficit.
He’s also, along with fellow co-chairman Erskine Bowles, a member of the board of TheCanKicksBack, a nonprofit group promoting the opposite of kicking the can down the road (motto: “The debt is too damn high.”)
And the retired Republican senator from Wyoming has some Gangnam-styled advice for young people about what they can do about the deficit:
“Stop Instagramming your breakfast.”
“Start using those precious media skills” to sign up people for TCKB.
He also has a warning for what Congress will do with the nation’s money if someone doesn’t do something about it: “These old coots will clean out the Treasury before you’ll get there.”
