#3

CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS SUBSTITUTE Makes significant investments in education, job training, transportation and infrastructure, and advanced research and development programs that will accelerate our economic recovery. At the same time, the CBC Budget protects the social safety net without cutting Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, or SNAP. The CBC Budget makes tough but responsible decisions to raise new revenue by making our tax system fairer by closing corporate tax loopholes and preferences, saving trillions of dollars on the deficit over the next decade. The CBC Budget will put our nation on a sustainable fiscal path by reducing our annual budget deficit to 1.8% of GDP by FY 2023.

Grijalva, Raul (AZ), Ellison (MN), Edwards, Donna (MD), Lee, Barbara (CA), McDermott (WA), Pocan, Mark (WI), Schakowsky (IL)

#5

CONGRESSIONAL PROGRESSIVE CAUCUS SUBSTITUTE Establishes the budget for the United States Government for fiscal year 2014 and setting forth appropriate budgetary levels for fiscal year 2013 and for fiscal years 2015 through 2023. The Back to Work Budget invests in America’s future because the best way to reduce our long-term deficit is to put America back to work.

Issa (CA)

#10

LATE Limits White House entertainment expenses to $200 per individual present, adjusts the rate of growth for means and non-means tested spending, and reforms SNAP and Medicaid by limiting the duration of benefits, giving States more control over the program, and helping recipients find work, among other purposes.

#7

Expresses a sense of the House that no reductions should be made in funding made available to the Department of Justice for crime prevention programs and offsets would come from restoring the Estate Tax to 2009 levels.

Van Hollen, Chris (MD)

#9

DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS SUBSTITUTE Inserts a full substitute budget resolution that reflects the priorities and challenges we face today by emphasizing job creation and growth, replacing the harmful sequester with a balanced approach to deficit reduction that includes targeted spending cuts as well as revenues, protecting Medicare beneficiaries, and cutting tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans while extending tax relief for the middle-class. The Democratic substitute meets these national priorities within a fiscally responsible framework that reduces the deficit to a sustainable 2.4 percent of GDP by 2023.

Waters (CA)
