BUDGET AND TAXES

Congress can be fiscally responsible without gutting the social safety net or ignoring our fraying infrastructure and education systems.  Unfortunately, Republicans seem to have given up.  As multiple Republican budgets have shown, they’re out to reduce the ability of government to function. They want to eliminate entire agencies, privatize Social Security, and end Medicare as we know it. If they get their way, there will be no federal support for schools, no federal monitoring of the environment or product safety, and no protection for seniors in retirement.

But we know that it doesn’t have to be this way.  We can protect Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, provide for the education of our nation’s children, and bolster an aging infrastructure, all while working on the deficit. We did it in the 1990s, and we can do it again.
