Dueling Visions: The CPC People’s Budget vs. the Budget for the 1%

Robert Borosage

The Congressional Progressive Caucus unveiled its fiscal 2016 “People’s Budget: A Raise For America” one day after House Republicans released their “A Balanced Budget for a Stronger America” proposal. The CPC touted a $1.9 trillion investment in America’s future and over 8 million new jobs. The House Republicans bragged about cutting $5 trillion over 10 years.

The sharp contrast between the two reflect stark differences in values and ideology – and a basic choice of whether government will serve the many or the few.

Gee, do ya think?!

This article tells us exactly nothing that we haven't known for years.

I would hardly call the republican proposal a 'vision.' 'Plot' would be a better word.

That same "stark contrast" exists between the CPC and the current power center of today's New UnDeal Democratic Party, whose corporate sponsorship is much more aligned with the Republican proposal.
