Happy Fiscal New Year?
Issues in Brief
September 28, 2012
October 1 marks the beginning of a new fiscal year for the U.S. Government, although there may not be much to celebrate. Here's where things stand:
Fiscal Year 2012 was full of bickering, gridlock, and precious little action on even the most immediate of fiscal concerns — let alone the long term.
Looking ahead, Fiscal Year 2013 presents substantial challenges that demand responsible behavior on the part of our leaders in Washington, D.C.
Now would be a good time for Congress and the President to make a new year's resolution: to adopt a bipartisan, grand fiscal bargain which goes into effect once the economy is stronger and sets our fiscal policy on a sustainable course for years to come.
Keeping that resolution would be worth a toast!
