America's Looming Age-Demographic Crisis

Last week, we took a look at the Congressional Budget Office’s rather gloomy budget projections over the next 30 years. Between FY 2021 and FY 2050, federal spending will grow as more Americans retire, structural budget deficits will worsen, and the share of the debt held by the public will rise to unprecedented levels. But the projections weren’t limited to the budget. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) also looked at economic and labor trends. Those are just as alarming as the budget projections.

The Growth of Federal Spending and Deficit Is a Serious Risk to America's Long-Term Prosperity

Earlier this month, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released an updated budget and economic outlook for the next ten years. The report provided projections on federal spending, revenues, and economic growth. The update was needed because the report that the CBO released in January was out of date because of the explosion of spending in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and related partial economic shutdowns across the country.

COVID-19 Made America's Already Extraordinarily Bad Fiscal Problems Worse

On Wednesday, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released separate reports on the ten-year budget outlook and the financial outlook for major federal trust funds. The reports show the impact of COVID-19 on the economy, the failure of Congress to responsibly manage federal spending, and the cost of doing nothing to put federal entitlement programs on a sustainable financial path.

The Federal Government’s Finances are a Raging Dumpster Fire

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) recently published its long-term budget outlook for the next 30 years, a report designed to provide lawmakers with a “point of comparison” with which they can assess the health of the current and future federal budget. The report shows that the finances of the federal government are a raging dumpster fire.

The Fiscal Disaster Facing the United States Is Much Worse Than It Appears

Back in April, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released regular budget outlook for the current year and 2019 through 2028 budget window. The report was concerning because it showed that the share of the debt held by the public as a percentage of gross domestic product (GDP) would increase from 78 percent in 2018 to 96.2 percent in 2028.
