A Chicken (Nugget?) in Every Pot: What's at Stake in the Budget Debate
September 17, 1999


Karl Polzer


This paper explores various aspects of the 1999 budget debate fueled in large part by federal agencies' projection of a $2.9 trillion surplus over 10 years. The tax bill, which would provide about $400 billion in tax relief, is also discussed; special attention is given to the health care provisions of this legislation.
