The FY 2018 Congressional Progressive Caucus Alternative Budget, The People's Budget: A
Roadmap for the Resistance tackles systemic issues with comprehensive solutions, from the impact of
climate change on rural communities and communities of color, to implementing critical criminal justice
reforms, to repairing and replacing outdated infrastructure, to creating millions of sustainable, good
paying jobs all over the country.
The Congressional Progressive Caucus is joined by organizations across the country who feel strongly
that a budget is a moral document; instead of funding endless war and cutting access to vital services, we
should make critical investments in repairing infrastructure, make billionaires and corporations pay their
fair share of taxes, expand access to much-needed social service programs, ensure equal opportunities in
education, reform our criminal justice system, and create good-paying, sustainable jobs that will not only
lift families out of poverty but grow our middle class.
Among many important provisions to improve our nation, the People’s Budget will:
Invest $2 trillion in America’s infrastructure to transition to a 21st Century economy and transform our
energy, water and transportation systems
Expand our commitment to efficient renewable energy and green jobs, including job assistance and
training for those transitioning from fossil fuel to clean energy jobs
Invest $100 billion to increase affordable access to reliable, high-speed internet
Protect and expand affordable healthcare for millions of Americans, including support for states to
transition to a single-payer healthcare system and provisions to lower prescription drug prices
Create and promote a fair tax system that benefits working families by ending tax loopholes, corporate
giveaways and tax breaks for billionaires and Wall Street and ensuring that billionaires and Wall Street pay
their fair share of taxes
End corporate tax breaks for offshoring American jobs and profits
Tax Wall Street to fund Main Street
Expand the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Care Credit
Ensure fair elections by increasing funding for voter protection and legal assistance programs and
strengthening key election integrity reforms
Advance criminal justice reform and promote safety of American communities by developing community
oriented policing reforms, increasing funding to address hate crimes, and promoting policies and initiatives to
significantly reduce gun violence
Curb special interest and dark money influence in politics by ensuring public financing of campaigns
Expand affordable housing for low-income Americans by increasing Community Development Block Grants
and HOME funds to cities, allocating $32 billion for Public Housing repairs, ensuring 100% of operating needs
for Public Housing, adding 400,000 new Section 8 Vouchers and fully funding the End Homelessness Act
Reduce military spending by eliminating unneeded weapons and reducing rather than increasing the US
nuclear arsenal, to fully fund badly needed social programs rather than the profit margins of giant military
