Fiscal Health

Overview

Left unaddressed, the nation's tax and spending policies will further encourage U.S. businesses to move their capital and create jobs overseas. CED Members urge lawmakers to join together on a bipartisan basis to simplify the tax code and adopt pro-growth regulations that neither impede nor favor any particular sector.

Robust economic growth also depends on reducing the national debt. If policymakers fail to enact a long-term plan, the proliferating debt will wreak havoc across sectors and generations, weakening the American Dream for the young and retirement programs for the elderly. Among CED’s  recommendations is SaveGo, a bipartisan blueprint that sets a maximum level of the debt burden as a percentage of the GDP, and requires Congress to operate within those constraints.
