Title: Facing Up To The Nation's Finances
Url: http://www.facingup.org/
Publisher: Public Agenda Foundation
Description: A nonpartisan project on the long-term challenges of the federal budget might seem like an impossibility, but a number of organizations have banded together to address this rather important and timely subject. Some of these organizations include the Brookings Institution, the Heritage Foundation, and Viewpoint Learning, and they are all concerned with calling for "meaningful action in confronting the various challenges to long-term fiscal stability." As they note on their site, some of these challenges include the impending retirements of the Baby Boomers and the growth in health care costs. First-time visitors may wish to explore the "Why It Matters" section at length, and then they should take a look at the "Resources" section. Here visitors will find a number of "Fast Facts" documents, a glossary of terms, and a selection of widgets. Visitors can also look over the blog and sign up to receive email alerts.
