Bankrupting America has gone full kitsch; unveiling an enormous billboard in downtown D.C. with the image of a ’50-style housewife gripping her just-roasted holiday bird.  She asks Congress to “give us something to be thankful for.”

Who better to send this message to Congress than a woman?  After all, women are the primary decision makers when it comes to household purchases and control most family budgets.  It is therefore appropriate that a woman carry the message that Congress must demonstrate courage and a serious commitment to both fiscal responsibility and our nation’s economic recovery.

You can see a picture of the billboard here.  If you’re in the DC area, go visit; it’s located at 11th St NW between G and H Streets, NW and will run for four weeks.
