Background on budget projections

March 9, 2008

Many Hill staffers, policy analysts, reporters, and others are interested in some of the details behind our most recent budget projections. We have posted a variety of such additional detail. For example, many observers over the past few weeks and months have become interested in what we assume about administrative regulatory actions in Medicare, Medicaid, and SCHIP in our baseline; information about those assumptions is posted here. We are posting this information in the hope that such transparency will further understanding of our baseline and estimates.
