Budgeting For America's Middle Class

Budgeting For America's Middle Class

In the Fall of 2011, we examined and graded five different federal budget proposals against the following seven criteria: Job Creation and Public Investment; Affordable Health Care; Adequate Social Security Income; Investments In Education; Sustainable Defense Policy; Fair & Adequate Revenue; and Long-Term Debt Reduction. 

The examined proposals include the Paul Ryan Budget Plan; the Bowles-Simpson framework, Pres. Obama's Defecit Reduction Proposal; the House Progressive Caucus'; and our very own. See how each fared by clicking on the image above.
