Slamdunks, Fireworks, and Eagles Super PAC

Slamdunks, Fireworks, and Eagles Super PAC The Collegiate Approach to Deficit Reduction

Slam Dunks, Fireworks and Eagles Super PAC is a DC-based Super PAC run by college students who are deeply concerned with our government's fiscal irresponsibility and determined to encourage deficit reduction through bipartisanship. Deficit reduction should be prioritized by both political parties and should be a concern of every American citizen, especially those of us who will soon be entering the workforce. As the next generation of Americans, we would like to stress to our leaders that their fiscal irresponsibility and political partisanship will soon be our problem. Slam Dunks, Fireworks, and Eagles Super PAC exists to address this concern. You may be wondering where our name came from. Our super PAC loves America and what is more American than slam dunks, fireworks, and eagles? There are a lot of super PACs out there and we wanted to stand out. Let’s be honest, you wouldn't’ be visiting our website if it wasn't for our fantastic name. It says: “Pay attention to us." Most politicians claim to appreciate the need to reduce our deficit; they simply can't agree on how to address this need. Attempts have been made to mandate a balanced federal budget. We are however committed to finding a bipartisan alternative to the Balanced Budget Amendment. We are asking nothing more than for politicians to carry out the commitments they have made to this country by putting the country's interests ahead of their own. We want to angle this as the college Super PAC, for people worried about our financial future, about deficits. We hope to accomplish our goal in part by raising funds to hold events at which politicians from both sides of the aisle can gather together with a round of beers to discuss proactive deficit reduction strategies. In college you settle your differences by talking them out around beers; we hope to encourage our Congressmen to engage in this practice too. There used to be a time when Democrats and Republicans would put aside their political differences at the end of the day and head to the local bar in hopes of understanding each other's perspectives and enjoy each other's company. Unfortunately we have personally seen this practice all but vanish on the Hill. We want to bring it back because we think we will have a better government if we have a friendlier government.

Students are impacted most by this fiscal cliff deal. Our frustrations carry over to this new year where our politicians have once again waited until the last minute to try to forge a deal and have officially gone over the fiscal cliff. We resolve in 2013 to be the voice for the thousands of college students who want to see more done about our governments debt.

Please share with all of your friends from college.

Finally something Democrats and Republicans are agreeing on! Members of both parties do agree that everyone should be mad at them.

"The American people have a right to be very upset with this Congress." Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Maryland.)

GW students were able to enjoy free pizza and beer as they discussed their opinions on our government's debt and how we can get DC working again. At the end of the day over 400 students showed and consumed 50 large pizzas and quite a few kegs as well !

We appreciate what CEO of Starbucks Howard Schultz is doing. Starbucks employees in Washington, D.C.,-area stores are being told to write “Come Together” on every cup of coffee they serve to promote a fiscal cliff deal.

“Rather than be bystanders, we have an opportunity — and I believe a responsibility — to use our company’s scale for good by sending a respectful and optimistic message to our elected officials to come together and reach common ground on this important issue,”

We couldn't agree more! SFE Super PAC is trying to do the exact same thing but with beer. #cometogether

With only days left before the fiscal cliff President Obama is vacationing in Hawaii and Speaker Boehner is home in Ohio. These two men should be working in DC on finding a bipartisan solution to our nation's deficit over a round of beers!

In the most crucial days leading up to the fiscal cliff, parties can't even agree with themselves much less the opposing party. Like if you think our politicians are embarrassing themselves and hurting this country with their stubbornness.

Liberal and conservative commentators alike took to Twitter and blogs to blast House Speaker John Boehner as a “failure” after his fiscal cliff legislation did not pass in his own party Thursday. Boehner’s “Plan B” legislation would have raised tax rates on Americans ma...

SUPER PAC WITH ONE OF YEAR’S BEST NAMES VOWS TO PRESS FORWARD: Of the more than 1,000 federal super PACs that have so far filed organizational paperwork with the federal government since they became legal in 2010, one that leaped off the page is the Slam Dunks, Fireworks, and Eagles Super PAC, which if only for its name, enjoyed a run of media attention (Fox News, Wall Street Journal) even while not raising much money.

But its operators — a pair of students from The George Washington University — argue that they really do mean business going forward. PI recently caught up with one of them, Daniel Bassali:

Q. So, what is up with your super PAC’s name — and do you intend to keep it?

A. Our unique name sprung our first wave of media attention. We believe that the name Slam Dunks, Fireworks, and Eagles invokes thoughts of a positive and united America rather than notions of negativity that are usually associated with D.C. politics. We have recently abbreviated the name to SFE Super PAC for simplicity's sake.

Q. Most super PACs sprang forth this election cycle and did a whole lot of nothing. What earned you so much attention this year?

A. People are very attracted to the inclusivity of our organization. Nearly everyone finds our call for bipartisan solutions to the deficit appealing. SFE Super PAC presents a unique twist to the traditional super PAC. We are founded and run by students rather than major political insiders. We advocate for solutions that benefit all Americans, instead of policy that benefits special interests.

Q. With the election over, what’s the next act for your super PAC?

A. SFE Super PAC will be hosting an event this spring at which politicians from both sides of the aisle can gather around some beers and talk freely about their deficit-reduction strategies. We believe that if these congressmen build relationships across the aisle, they are more likely to embrace bipartisan solutions.

Q. By design, super PACs are supposed to advocate for or against political candidates — usually a very partisan exercise. Is there really a place in U.S. politics for a bipartisan super PAC?

A. Should there really be a place in America for purely partisan gridlock? We can't afford that. I believe we will see many super PACs shift from campaigning for or against candidates to lobbying for particular policy issues. Politicians today have placed their personal interests ahead of this nation's future generations. Congress has kicked the can down the road and upcoming generations will have to pay the price. SFE Super PAC advocates for responsible solutions that protect our future rather than political posturing that hurts the nation.

Q. You haven’t raised much cash so far. How do you expect to change that?

A. We are one of the only super PACs that I know of that is fully financed through small donors and grass-roots efforts. We are overwhelmed with the positive reaction we have received since we started this super PAC. Our event this spring will give SFE Super PAC a new level of legitimacy that will help us raise more for our efforts.

Fiscal Policy and National Manufacturing: Why Building American Is the Lynchpin to Deficit Reduction

09/11/2012

Slam Dunks, Fireworks and Eagles Super PAC honors those who have fought for our country, thanks those who were first responders to the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, prides in those brave men and women on Flight 93, remembers those innocent 3,000 plus who lost their lives on that day, and consoles the families who will never be the same because of the evil attacks on this great nation. No matter what your political opinions are, days like today should remind us that we are all Americans and what unites us is so much more than what separates us. We will never forget what happened 11 years ago.

Is Washington Bankrupting America?

Our publicly held debt is not just an issue that should be discussed; it is one that we must address. We need solutions today because this problem is only growing and we are facing the reality of an America that for the first time in it's history will not be better when it is passed to the next generation. This video shows very clearly how big this problem is and how much larger it is going to get if we don't resolve our partisan differences and act now.

America can't afford Washington to put this off anymore. We have been kicking the can down the road for decades now while only increasing our debt every year. If our politicians don't reverse course we face the possibility of a financially and economically insecure America. Share this video with all your friends and visit www.slamdunksfireworksandeagles.com to learn more about what our super PAC is doing to bring politicians together and find deficit solutions.
