Proposed Budget Deal Would Prevent Some Harmful Cuts – But Threatens to Leave Unemployed Workers Out in the Cold

We have a deal – sort of.

Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray (D-WA) and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) – who have been leading a new round of budget negotiations – have announced that they reached agreement on federal government spending levels for the remainder of fiscal year (FY) 2014 as well as FY 2015. Given Congress’s propensity toward last-minute bargains in recent years, you may be a bit surprised that the announcement from Sen. Murray and Rep. Ryan came a couple of days before their self-imposed deadline of December 13, and just over a month before current FY 2014 funding runs out on January 15. But there remains a lot more work to be done to ensure that we don’t face another government shutdown in January – and to make sure low-income women and their families are protected and unemployed workers aren’t left behind.

So what does the deal do? In short:

And what doesn’t the deal do?

Ultimately, it is important to remember that this deal is not yet law. While it represents some progress toward blunting the impact of the sequester, this budget battle won’t be over until Congress approves a final bill that ensures programs for low-income Americans and benefits for long-term unemployed workers are protected.
