CBO released the latest two volumes in a series that provides information to lawmakers as they confront the budgetary challenges facing the nation.
- Options for Reducing the Deficit, 2023 to 2032--Volume I: Larger Reductions contains estimates and detailed discussions for 17 large options. Each of those options would either reduce the deficit from 2023 to 2032 by more than $300 billion or, in the case of Social Security options, have a comparably large effect in later decades.
- Options for Reducing the Deficit, 2023 to 2032--Volume II: Smaller Reductions provides estimates of the budgetary savings from 59 options that would decrease federal spending or increase federal revenues over the next decade by a smaller amount. Most of those options would save $10 billion or more over the next decade.
