President Biden submitted his budget blueprint last week, setting out his administration’s policy vision for the fiscal year that begins in October.   

“There’s a vision here and there’s a contrast,” Office of Management and Budget Director Shalanda Young said. “You can be fiscally responsible and invest in the American people, or you can pull the rug out from people by going after programs that people absolutely need.” 

She expressed concerns about what majority members in the House would cut in order to reduce the deficit. She said, “We’re looking forward to seeing their budget so the American people can compare it to what we’re putting out today.”
