Your Budget Priorities
Budgets are all about setting priorities, and we want to hear about yours as we work to build on our two-year bipartisan budget deal.
Since August 2010 Congress has put in place $3.3 trillion in deficit reduction. This year our deficit will be about a third of what the Congressional Budget Office expected it to be just five years ago, and the long-term outlook has improved somewhat as well. While we absolutely need to tackle our long-term budget deficit and debt challenges fairly and responsibly, we now have some breathing room to also focus on the other deficits facing our country, like those in jobs, innovation, infrastructure, and education.
So tell us what investments and programs you value, like safe roads and bridges, affordable college education, national security, and many others. And let us know if there are programs, policies, or tax loopholes that the federal government spends money on that you think it shouldn’t.
