This website is a project of the Congressional Progressive Caucus Center.
While our economy is rebounding from the Great Recession, hardworking Americans are being left behind. Our economic and political system has lost sight of what matters most: We the People.
The FY 2019 Congressional Progressive Caucus’ People's Budget: A Progressive Path Forward provides major reinvestments in our country through infrastructure, education, and wage growth to increase opportunity for all.
The People’s Budget is a down payment on a brighter future for all Americans, ensuring every family struggling to make ends meet has a fair shot at the American Dream. An investment in roads, bridges, and railways is an investment in the safety and prosperity of the American people. We need to reprioritize funding key programs and services so the government addresses the real needs of working families, instead of fueling endless wars or tax policies that benefit the rich at the expense of ordinary working people.
