Message of responsible spending resonates at BlogHer
Last week, we had the privilege to attend the 2011 BlogHer Conference in San Diego. BlogHer brought in over three thousand attendees from all over the country and around the world. And we had a great time! Between enjoying Skinny Girl Margaritas and talking about the need for a healthy economy and slim government spending with countless bloggers, we felt right at home.
The level of interest from these women was incredibly high. Again and again, they told us that they just couldn’t understand why Washington can’t seem to make the same responsible financial choices that they have to make everyday in their own homes. We couldn’t agree more, Washington should be held to same standards of fiscal responsibility as everyday Americans.
When the news of S+P’s downgrade of the United States’ credit rating hit last Friday, people were visibly concerned. They knew their 401k accounts and investments that were suddenly losing value because Washington can’t find common-sense solutions. At the end of the conference, we had met so many amazing leaders in the blogging community and we hope to stay in touch as we continue to break down the latest budgetary and economic news at BankruptingAmerica.org.
