While the rest of us labored to meet today’s tax filing deadline, lawmakers have not been so diligent in improving the tax code.
New budget numbers are out, but the story remains the same as it has been as of late: deficits will drop over the next couple of years, only to return to trillion-dollar levels within ten years.
There was lots of talk last week about the budget, but there was little movement towards bipartisan agreement on a way forward for the country.
Americans have a lot to say about the nation’s fiscal outlook and what it means to them. Through Fix the Debt, their voices are being heard.
The news out of Washington nowadays mostly revolves around the deep partisan divide and the inability to get virtually anything done. Fortunately, the story is more encouraging elsewhere. As illustrated by a recent event in California, Fix the Debt is working with lawmakers and other partners to promote an informed discussion of our fiscal challenges and bipartisan collaboration towards concrete solutions.
