Webinar: The Cost of the Trump and Biden Campaign Plans

Whoever is inaugurated on January 20, 2021, will face many fiscal challenges over his term. The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget published the only existing comprehensive study to detail and compare the fiscal cost of President Donald Trump and Vice President Joe Biden's campaign agendas. We estimate that both candidates would add trillions to the debt – but in very different ways.

Committee senior vice president Marc Goldwein reviewed our findings in this webinar. Marc gave an overview of the report and provide estimates for what effect each candidate's agenda might have on the debt and the nation's long-term fiscal health.
