Chartbook: Fiscal Challenges Facing the Next Administration

On August 23, Marc Goldwein, senior vice president and senior policy director of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, gave a presentation regarding the fiscal challenges that the winner of the 2024 presidential election will have to face, the principles that make for a fiscally responsible campaign, and the kinds of fiscal policies candidates are talking about on the campaign trail.

The chartbook below accompanied that presentation.


Throughout the 2024 presidential election cycle, US Budget Watch 2024 will bring information and accountability to the campaign by analyzing candidates’ proposals, fact-checking their claims, and scoring the fiscal cost of their agendas.

By injecting an impartial, fact-based approach into the national conversation, US Budget Watch 2024 will help voters better understand the nuances of the candidates’ policy proposals and what they would mean for the country’s economic and fiscal future.
