The House GOP Budget vs. the President's Budget

By Loren Adler & Shai Akabas

The Bipartisan Policy Center charts the House GOP budget developed by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan against various other budget proposals, including the president's:

Under Ryan’s budget, the ratio of debt to our economy, or gross domestic product (GDP), would decline to 62 percent by 2022. Notably, this is lower than the debt levels achieved by either the Domenici-Rivlin or Bowles-Simpson commissions (both of which reduce the debt to 67 percent of GDP by 2022), and significantly lower than that under the president’s budget proposal for FY 2013 (76 percent) or the BPC Plausible Baseline* (86 percent).
