Gary Cowan started this petition to The American people and the U.S. Congress

Our national debt is 27.9 trillion dollars and rapidly increasing by the minute. It is completely out of control. We, the American people, demand that the Federal budget be balanced to achieve a  0.5% budget surplus of total U.S. debt; which in turn will be used to pay down the debt.  It is understood that emergencies and economic downturns happen and on occasion, it may be necessary to operate the budget at a loss.  In order for this deficit to be approved however; it must be voted on in the Senate and should be won by a 2/3 majority vote.  This is not only a Democrat or a Republican issue. Both parties are guilty. For far too long, there has been no accountability for government unabated overspending of our tax money. Your unchecked spending is out of control. Our government is bankrupting America and we will not let you destroy our country from within. We, the American people, demand that the budget be balanced and our debt start to be paid down.  You can not continue to raise the debt ceiling and print ungodly sums of money at your discretion. You can not spend more than what we as a country have coming in. This is lunacy. This must stop. This will keep devaluing our dollar until it is worth nothing.  We, the American citizens, will not let this happen. We placed you into your position of power to represent us and as your employer, we expect you to be fiscally responsible for the sake of our country now and into the future. So make this happen!  Make this law now! 

Sincerely, 

-The American people
