Introduction: Policy teams from six groups – the American Enterprise Institute, the Bipartisan Policy Center, the Center for American Progress, the Economic Policy Institute, The Heritage Foundation, and the Roosevelt Institute Campus Network (representing the perspective of younger Americans) – each provided a comprehensive budget plan to resolve the nation’s looming fiscal crises.
An excerpt from the summary of the initiative:

As the report of the bipartisan Bowles-Simpson commission stated, “The era of debt denial is over, and there can be no turning back.” Today, the public is beginning to demand honest talk about difficult choices and shared sacrifices.
