Conrad budget

Here is the Chairman’s mark from the Senate Finance committee Chair, Sen. Conrad. On twitter it is being called the “legislative language of Simpson-Bowles”, but I haven’t had a chance to dig in and look closely; I cannot get to it until later.

Update: ShaiAkabas of the Bipartisan Policy Center says the Conrad budget is quite close to the final Simpson-Bowles report (unlike the Cooper-LaTourette bill voted down in the House).

Update 2: busy day…..Sen. Toomey offers a budget today. Will have to dig in later…..twitter saying he claims balanced budget within 8 years which is quite aggressive.
