Why a Balanced Approach? • Policymakers need • Direction (and cover) to do what they know they need to do • Reminder that BCA was pre-Simpson-Bowles • “Exempt me” strategy will fail • White House SAP • Counterproductive • Those that can, should say more • Several groups requesting revenue increases join the conversation: #NDDUnited

  10. Post-Election Long Game • Lame duck scenarios • Balanced approach • How balanced is “balanced?” • Kick the can • How long? • What’s the offset, if any? • “Carve-out” bills • Exempt defense • Exempt Medicare • Etc… • Cancel altogether • How do we react…? join the conversation: #NDDUnited

  12. WWBD? Hold the Line! • NDD steering committee will evaluate, advise • Stay the course • Keep pushing for balanced approach that does not include more NDD cuts • NDD already cut to levels recommended by Simpson-Bowles via Budget Control Act caps • NDD now at levels not seen since President Eisenhower held office • Eliminating all of NDD still won’t balance budget • Silence is golden join the conversation: #NDDUnited
