The Obama administration is scheduled to release its FY2013 federal budget this month. The budget is likely to include high levels of spending, huge deficits, and various tax increases. Which federal agencies would win and lose under the plan, and how would the tax and spending changes affect the economy? Will Democrats in Congress embrace the administration’s proposals, and do House Republicans have a better plan? How will the scheduled “sequester” cuts affect the budget picture? Join us for a discussion with Cato fiscal experts, who will explore the new budget and the upcoming fiscal battles in Congress.
