Looking at a different kind of budget
The budget and budget process of the United States has been in desperate need of a new approach.
The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) has - for four years - helped to lead the charge for a different kind of budget for the nation: one that focuses on job creation and public engagement alongside drawing down the deficit; and one that takes progressive, alternative solutions and implements them into a budget which works for all. The People's Budget incorporates both of these principles.
Progressive Congress created this site as a means to help educate exactly what the People's Budget proposes, and how it can improve the lives of all Americans in the near term and even more importantly - in the long term.
This website endeavors to highlight the expert analysis of economists, public intellectuals and others around the People's Budget, as well as to illuminate the conversation the American people are holding around this alternative budget. We also seek to provide some insights into what the budget can accomplish through helpful info-graphics.
Progressive Congress has a history of bringing clarity to what the progressive movement in America stands for and what their principles are.
The People's Budget helps to illustrate exactly what progressives in the CPC believe from a policy and fiscal point of view.
The People's Budget serves not only as a voice for how the American government can incorporate progressive policies into everyday governmental functions and administration, but helps to demonstrate exactly what the foundations of the progressive movement in America are today. And finally, in illustrates how progressive values can help contribute to a better tomorrow and better future for all Americans.
