Ross Perot: “We are running out of time”

Ross Perot is jumping back into the political fray, this time with a stern warning that the country better start paying attention to the national debt.

"Not since the Great Depression have we seen an economic crisis of the magnitude that we are facing today," he says.

The former presidential candidate has reemerged with a Web site spotlighting the soaring budget deficit: more than $9.3 trillion and growing.

He says the purpose of the site, which is not affiliated with any political party, is "to provide accurate information to every citizen about the serious economic problems facing our country."


Note: Mr. Perot points out that 9.3 trillion dollar bills placed end-to-end would reach the moon and back 1,900 times.
