‘The People’s Budget’: Analysis of the Congressional Progressive Caucus budget for fiscal year 2018 | Economic Policy Institute

For the seventh year in a row, the Economic Policy Institute Policy Center (EPIPC) has provided assistance to the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) in analyzing and scoring the specific policy proposals in its alternative budget and in modeling its cumulative impact on the federal budget over the next decade. EPIPC finds that The People’s Budget would have significant positive impacts, including improving the economic well-being of low- and middle-income families, making necessary public investments, strengthening  the social safety net, and increasing tax progressivity and adequacy while reducing the deficit in the medium term.
