Battle of the Budget

ECM believes that greater investments in children’s well-being are essential to keep America competitive and to meet our moral obligation to future generations.

Recent health care reform and nutrition legislation are important advances for children, but we now face an environment in which these gains could be repealed and billions could be cut from successful federal programs.

ECM advocates for responsible long-term deficit reduction through a combination of revenue increases and spending cuts that do not harm low-income and vulnerable people.
