Alan Simpson, longtime U.S. Senator who's now better known as part of the Simpson-Bowles budget deficit reduction plan, belies (and defies) his 81 years and takes to new media to encourage young people to get involved in federal debt reduction efforts.
And if that means going Gangnam Style in the video for the Campaign to Fix the Debt and The Can Kicks Back, then Simpson doesn't have any issue with, as he put it, making "a perfect ass" of himself.
So all you whippersnappers, Uncle Alan wants you to "stop Instagramming your breakfast and Tweeting your first-world problems and getting on YouTube so you can see Gangnam Style" and instead get to work helping reduce the deficit.
If you don't, warns the former Republican Senator from Wyoming, "these old coots will clean out the Treasury before you get there."You also might find these items of interest:
