Investing in Our Nation: The Future of Federal Budgeting

While the economy is improving, millions of Americans remain out of work through no fault of their own and thousands more are facing home foreclosures because they have lost their jobs. Our top priority must be to support a robust recovery and put America back to work.

At the same time, we must act now to lay the foundation for sustained long-term economic growth. We must implement a plan to support small businesses, grow the economy, and ensure shared prosperity for all, including the middle class. That will require making strategic national investments through our federal budget to out-educate, out-innovate, and out-compete the rest of the world. It will also require that plan to steadily and predictably reduce our deficits and debt so that we establish a strong foundation for long-term growth.

Join the Center for American Progress Action Fund and Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) for a speech on the future of federal budgeting to invest and grow our nation’s future.
