The People’s Budget

AN ACT TO ESTABLISH A COMMISSION TO REPORT ON THE PEOPLE’S BUDGET H.3220; S.1659

This Act calls on Congress to pass a federal People’s Budget that creates millions of jobs, invests in infrastructure, moves towards single payer healthcare, makes college free, expands housing, makes corporations and those with high incomes pay their fair share, and reduces military spending. This Act also forms a commission to report on the impact this re-prioritized budget would have on Massachusetts.

The Fiscal Year 2019 Congressional Progressive Caucus’s People’s Budget: A Progressive Path Forward, builds bridges of opportunity, starting with the most vulnerable communities. The People’s Budget creates millions of jobs and increases wages for those who continue to be on the sidelines of our economy. It invests in our neglected infrastructure, ends the systematic inequality in our tax system by making corporations pay their fair share, and stops the rising cost of prescription drugs. The People’s Budget provides a progressive pathway to building a strong economy so working families can prosper.
