Benefits for the Aged and the Federal Budget: Short- and Long-Term Projections

Date: November 14, 2002
Creator: Storey, James R
Description: As the 108th Congress addresses short-term budget decisions, it may also want to consider the long-run impacts of those decisions and the major shifts in budget composition that are underway. Congress may be pressed to add new benefits in response to population aging, such as improved support for long-term care and broader Medicare drug coverage.
