This week at CBPP, we focused on the federal budget, health, state budgets and taxes, federal taxes, and the economy.

  • On the federal budget, Richard Kogan explained that the Senate majority plans to cut funding for the two appropriations bills that cover key human services programs.
  • On health, Judith Solomon and Matt Broaddus detailed how new claims by opponents of Medicaid expansion rest on faulty analysis.
  • On state budgets and taxes, Elizabeth McNichol stressed that state taxes on inherited wealth can be a powerful tool for building a more broadly shared prosperity.
  • On federal taxes, we concluded that the expansions to the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit in the Working Families Tax Relief Act would benefit millions of Asian American households. We also updated our fact sheets on that legislation’s benefits to Black and Latino households.
  • On the economy, we updated our backgrounder on how many weeks of unemployment compensation are available and our chart book tracking the post-Great Recession economy.
