Webinar - Understanding The People's Budget

Start: March 10, 2016 9:00 PM Eastern Time (US & Canada) (GMT-05:00)

Host Contact Info: Andrea Miller, andrea@peopledemandingaction.org

Budgets are moral documents; every progressive issue and value is impacted by the Federal Budget. Each year, the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) offers an alternative budget resolution to the “austerity” budgets supported by the House Majority and Speaker Ryan. The People's Budget offers a solid blueprint to:

  • Invest more than $1 trillion in housing, education, transportation, clean energy and safe water to create millions of jobs
  • Prevent cuts, restore social spending and reduce poverty by half in 10 years
  • Increase educational opportunities, provide Pre-K and debt-free college for all
  • Increase, not cut, Social Security and health care
  • Close corporate tax loopholes, tax Wall Street speculation and raise taxes on the top 2%
  • Redirect wasteful Pentagon spending and direct to peoples needs, ending Pentagon pork and the overseas contingency "slush fund"
