Last month, Representative Don Young of Alaska introduced the DebtPatriots.Gov Act of 2011, which calls for the creation of a website dedicated to collecting donations to reduce the public debt of the United States. The website, which will be hosted at www.DebtPatriots.gov, will collect donations and publicly recognize the patriotism of those who “are willing to contribute additional funds, above and beyond their tax obligations.”
The bill proposes several levels of donor recognition:
Corporation Award Levels
- Corporate Founder ($50B).
- Corporate Son of Liberty ($10B).
- Corporate Constitutional Delegate ($1B).
- Corporate Minuteman ($500M).
- Corporate Patriot ($1M).
