Federal Budget Plans Compared: Ryan, Senate, & the Progressive Caucus
Side-by-Side Comparison of Three Alternative Budget Bills
The National Priorities Projects has created a very useful side-by-side comparison of the three federal budget plans offered this week by Congressman Ryan, Senator Murray and the House Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC). It provides a handy matrix comparing those three major plans, and contrasting those proposals with relevant polling data.
For another take on the competing budget proposals, see Paul Krugman’s New York Times column, “After the Flimflam,” which provides a brief critique of the three plans. It’s well worth reading – if for no other reason than the fact that one rarely gets to see a budget called “flimflammier.”
