Facing Up to the Nation's Finances: Understanding Public Attitudes About the Federal Budget

According to Facing Up to the Nation's Finances: Understanding Public Attitudes About the Federal Budget (13 pages, PDF), a new report from Public Agenda, the public has little difficulty understanding the nation's current fiscal challenges and is willing to consider tough tradeoffs to address our growing national debt. Developed by Viewpoint Learning, the Facing Up to the Nation's Finances initiative draws on research and analysis done at the Brookings Institution, the Concord Coalition, and the Heritage Foundation.
