Billboard Campaign o' the Day: Stop Digging

I like the idea.

Bankrupting America, a project of Public Notice, today announced the posting of 48 billboards in 10 different states across the country highlighting the harmful impact of America’s skyrocketing national debt and urging policymakers in Washington to take meaningful action to cut spending. This is part of Bankrupting America’s “Stop Digging” campaign sending the message to Congress and the president to focus on reducing the debt in the run-up to the November elections.

...The billboards are located in major media markets in Ohio, Virginia, Florida, North Carolina, Nevada, Iowa, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma. Three different designs, titled “Not-So-Sweet 16,” “$16 Trillion in the Hole,” and “The Debt Falls on Their Shoulders” – each conveying the severity of our fiscal crisis – will run from Aug. 6 through Sept. 30.

Oh. And there's always my favorite bumper-sticker, which isn't affiliated with the billboard campaign:
