Deficit Reduction Plan from the President

Today President Obama sent his plan for reducing the federal deficit to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction. There are a variety of ways you can learn what he proposed.

1) Read his statement from the White House web site or watch it from the Washington Post web site (warning, you will have to watch a short ad):

2) Read the Office of Management and Budget blog post on the plan.
3) Read a fact sheet (4 pages) or the full plan (80 pages).

Want to comment on this plan? Or have your own ideas on how to reduce the deficit? The Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction wants to hear from you. They have a form up on their web site to make commenting easy.

Still need more information? Why not check out the library's Debt and Budget Information guide.
