Comeback America Initiative’s 10 Million Dollars A Minute Tour

On September 15, 2012, Joe Minarik, CED Senior Vice President and Director of Research, participated in the Comeback America Bus Tour in Strongsville, OH; at Waukesha County Technical College in Milwaukee, WI on September 17th; and at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri on September 18th. The 10 Million a Minute Tour is raising awareness regarding the fact that, for every minute that goes by, "our federal government's financial sinkhole grows deeper by 10 million dollars." The bus tour is a fact-based, non-partisan, non-ideological discussion that is stopping in over a dozen states to raise public awareness about the current and future issues concerning U.S. finances. The tour is an issue-oriented campaign led by the Comeback America Initiative.
