This week at CBPP, we focused on Social Security, health care, state budgets and taxes, and the economy.
On Social Security, we updated our chart book on the top ten facts about Social Security. Bryann DaSilva gave a breakdown of those facts here, here, here, and here. He also listed some striking numbers about Social Security to celebrate its 80th birthday.
On health care, Jesse Cross-Call explained why Arizona’s proposed changes to its Medicaid expansion would jeopardize the state’s dramatic coverage gains under health reform.
On state budgets and taxes, Erica Williams advised North Carolina lawmakers to reject a proposed “taxpayer bill of rights,” which would weaken education and other public services over time.
On the economy, we updated our chart book on the legacy of the Great Recession.
