CBO Analysis of the President's FY 2016 Budget

Today PGPF released a new report on the Congressional Budget Office's analysis of the President's proposed fiscal year 2016 budget. Using their own economic and technical assumptions, CBO finds that under the President’s budget, debt would remain at historically high levels over the next ten years, interest costs would climb sharply, and mandatory spending would continue to grow while funding for discretionary programs declines to historically low levels.
