Washington D.C. – Tomorrow, the Center for American Progress will release a new report documenting that budget cuts insisted on last spring by the U.S. House of Representatives cost the American economy nearly 400,000 jobs. The analysis tracks the impact those reductions had on employment in three specific areas targeted by the House for particularly deep cuts.

These cuts not only increased the number of unemployed workers, but also will result in less public protection from crime, delayed nuclear waste cleanup, inefficient use of funds in paying for office, laboratory and storage space for federal agencies, and greater long-term cost to the taxpayer for obligations that government must ultimately meet.

Please join Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and CAP Action Senior Fellow Scott Lilly for a press call tomorrow, Wednesday, October 27 at 10:30am to discuss these job-elimination efforts by the current Congress and the growing damage this is causing around the country.
