EPI on the CPC People's Budget

The Economic Policy Institute reported on the Congressional Progressive Caucus budget. The bullet points follow. See the link for details.

"It builds on recent CPC budget alternatives in setting the following priorities: near-term job creation, financing public investments, strengthening low- and middle-income families’ economic security, raising adequate revenue to meet budgetary needs while restoring fairness to the tax code, strengthening social insurance programs, and ensuring long-run fiscal sustainability." It would:

Improve the economic well-being of low- and middle-income families by finally completing and locking in the economic recovery; Make necessary public investments; Facilitate economic opportunity for all; Strengthen the social safety net; Smartly cut spending; Increase tax progressivity and adequacy; Reduce the deficit in the medium term."
