Welcome to the American Voters Association (AVA) web site.
Decisions made by elected officials have a financial impact on America's children. To date, that impact appears to be rather substantial and rather negative, what with a $17.6 Trillion National Debt and an estimated $119 Trillion worth of "unfunded federal entitlemant liabilities". (google: usdebtclock.org for more infomation.)
Elected officials do not have to explain the financial impact of their decisions on America's children to the American people because the American people are not organized for the purpose of asking them to do so.
The mission of the AVA is to organize people for the purpose of asking elected officials to explain, and answers questions, about the financial impact of their decisions on America's children and to do so on a continual and timely basis. Membership is free.
The plan is to have AVA volunteers interview every U. S. Senator and Representative every month. The first interview will focus on the annual federal budget and its financial impact on America's children. Subsequent interviews will focus on various parts of the federal budget, again, with the financial impact on America's children in mind!
These interviews will be be taped and posted on our web site for members to watch or listen to at their leisure.
This process will be duplicated on the state and local level in due course.
The program will start when we achieve 435,000 members. (see FAQ's #1)
So, if you want elected officials to explain the financial impact of their decisions on America's children, perhaps even your own child, join the AVA today and encourage your friends to do the same. It is the only way that a 435,000 membership level will ever be reached. Lastly, please don't overlook the educational value of this program for America's children. (see FAQ's #2)
