AAF’s Director of Fiscal Policy Gordon Gray Testifies on Responsibly Funding Defense and Domestic Priorities
In testimony before the House Budget Committee, AAF’s Director of Fiscal Policy Gordon Gray discussed the need to responsibly fund the nation’s defense and domestic priorities. Here are three key observations:
- The BCA made an important down-payment on what will need to be a significant fiscal consolidation, and reinstated a more formal disciplining process on discretionary spending;
- The original conception of the BCA and two follow-on amendments provide a valuable model against which to compare future cap adjustment legislation; and
- The congressional budget process is well suited to addressing the need to responsibly fund discretionary spending priorities in a divided Congress.
