The Federal Budget Matters Now More Than Ever

When President Obama took office, he inherited an economy in free fall.

Democratic policies turned the economy around.

However, much work remains to ensure we have an economy that works for all Americans.

We also must address the long-term budget challenge posed by an aging population. But Congressional GOP plans that only cut spending are not the answer. Revenues must be part of the equation. Otherwise, we face unpalatable choices.

With so much work left to be done, we can’t afford to let Republicans undo the progress we’ve made.
