Congressional Deficit Agreement

Congress passed the Budget Control Act of 2011 on August 2, addressing federal spending and the budget deficit in three parts.

The Congressional Budget Office projects that the plan will yield between $2.1 and $2.3 trillion in deficit reduction over the FY 2012–2021 period. The law caps discretionary spending through 2021; allows the president to raise the debt ceiling by as much as $2.1 trillion to $2.4 trillion through 2013; and creates a Congressional Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction. The committee is charged with proposing a longer-term deficit reduction plan that yields an additional $1.2 trillion to $1.5 trillion in savings over ten years through both tax and entitlement reform.

In addition, the agreement includes an enforcement mechanism to ensure budget savings should the debt reduction plans stall in Congress. This "sequestering" mechanism would impose across-the-board cuts of up to $1.2 trillion if a debt-reduction plan saving at least that much fails to pass Congress before January 15, 2012.

ADA staff members will be working with the Senate Appropriations Committee as it begins its work this month on the Fiscal Year 2012 budget using reduced numbers.
