The Pew Budget Challenge

Pew projects that current policies will put the national debt on a path to reach unsustainable levels over the next decade—unless Congress and the president enact spending cuts, tax hikes, or both. The fragile economic recovery only heightens this challenge.

The Pew Budget Challenge includes more than 100 illustrative options to reduce the debt, as presented by sources such as the Congressional Budget Office and the Joint Committee on Taxation.
