Demos Releases Side-by-Side Budget Plan Analysis As Bi-Partisan Talks Heat Up In Washington
WASHINGTON - Only two of five current budget proposals put our nation on a sustainable path with public investments needed to accelerate the economic recovery and rebuild a strong middle class, according to a new report card published by the policy center Demos.
A multi-issue national organization, Demos combines research, policy development, and advocacy to influence public debates and catalyze change. We publish books, reports, and briefing papers that illuminate critical problems and advance innovative solutions; work at both the national and state level with advocates and policymakers to promote reforms; help to build the capacity and skills of key progressive constituencies; project our values into the media by promoting Demos Fellows and staff in print, broadcast, and Internet venues; and host public events that showcase new ideas and leading progressive voices.
