Former U.S. Sen. Alan Simpson (R-WY) has a message for the Millennial generation: use social media to spread the word and sign up for The Can Kicks Back campaign.
We know what you’re thinking: Huh?
The 81-year-old Simpson – of the Simpson-Bowles deficit reduction commission – wants to encourage politicians to work across party lines to fix the $16 trillion U.S. national debt.
He’s even willing to dance "Gangnam Style" to get your attention:
His grassroots movement is called The Can Kicks Back, in reference to the old "kicking the can down the road" adage. With the Fiscal Cliff looming, it’s even more crucial to watch.
It’s also funny.
