(OPEN):
WITH THE CLOCK TICKING DOWN TO THE NOVEMBER-23RD DEADLINE FOR THE CONGRESSIONAL "SUPER-COMMITTEE" TO PRESENT RECOMMENDATIONS THAT WOULD REDUCE THE NATION'S DEBT-LOAD, A NATIONAL COALITION IS ENCOURAGING CITIZENS--ACROSS THE COUNTRY--TO TELL POLICYMAKERS TO FOCUS ON BROAD-BASED SPENDING- AND TAX-REFORM.  THE COALITION FOR A FISCALLY SOUND AMERICA WANTS LEADERS IN CONGRESS TO ENACT--AS SOON AS POSSIBLE--BOTH SPENDING- AND TAX-REFORM SUFFICIENT TO STABILIZE THE NATIONAL DEBT, AND REVIVE THE ECONOMY.  BUT, KEY TO THE EFFORT IS CITIZEN-ENGAGEMENT:  CO-CHAIR, AND FORMER OKLAHOMA DEMOCRATIC-CONGRESSMAN, DAVE MCCURDY, SAYS THAT THE COALITION WILL FOCUS ON EDUCATION, PARTICIPATION, AND PROBLEM-RESOLUTION...

(MCCURDY):
"
AS CONGRESS'S BIPARTISAN 'SUPER-COMMITTEE' RECENTLY HEARD, OUR NATION IS AT AN ECONOMIC-CROSSROADS.  THE COALITION FOR A FISCALLY SOUND AMERICA BELIEVES [THAT] IT IS NECESSARY TO MAKE MORE AMERICANS AWARE OF [BOTH] THE SCOPE AND THE DEPTH OF THE NATION'S FISCAL-DILEMMA.  WE HOPE TO HELP THEM BETTER UNDERSTAND THE CAUSES, EFFECTS, AND POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS, IN A WAY THAT MOTIVATES THEM TO TAKE ACTION--AND COMMUNICATE, WITH THEIR ELECTED-OFFICIALS, THE NEED TO ENACT LEGISLATION THAT WILL [BOTH] STABILIZE THE NATIONAL DEBT, AND BRING AMERICA BACK TO PROSPERITY."

(BRIDGE):
FELLOW CO-CHAIR, AND FORMER IOWA REPUBLICAN-CONGRESSMAN, TOM TAUKE [AS IN "TALKY"], SAYS THAT--BECAUSE THE NATION'S DEBT THREATENS JOBS, INVESTMENT, AND NATIONAL SECURITY--CITIZEN-PARTICIPATION IS CRUCIAL TO COMMUNICATING TO MEMBERS-OF-CONGRESS HOW THE DECISIONS THAT THEY MAKE TODAY WILL HAVE A LASTING IMPACT, FOR GENERATIONS TO COME...

(TAUKE):
"
OUR NATIONAL DEBT IS RAPIDLY INCREASING, AS A SHARE OF OUR TOTAL ECONOMY.  AND, OUR NATION'S ECONOMIC-GROWTH IS STAGNATED.  SO, WE JUST CAN'T WAIT ANY LONGER AND PUSH OFF, TO THE NEXT GENERATION, THE TOUGH DECISIONS [THAT ARE] NECESSARY TO RESOLVE OUR FISCAL-ISSUES.  WE HAVE A MORAL-RESPONSIBILITY TO SAVE OUR COUNTRY.  AND, WE BELIEVE THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF AMERICANS ARE WILLING TO DO WHAT IS NECESSARY NOW, TO ENSURE A BRIGHT FUTURE FOR [BOTH] THEMSELVES AND THEIR CHILDREN.  WE SIMPLY CANNOT DELAY THESE TOUGH CHOICES ANY LONGER."
