Absent further legislation, CBO projects that personal income will be $15.7 trillion lower over the decade. Additional aid to individuals is critical both for economic health and for the well-being of households.

CBO projects that, absent additional aid, the unemployment rate will still be 7.6 percent by the end of 2021. This underscores the need to give more aid directly to individuals and to extend the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program.

(Thread on updated economic projections from CBO) CBO now believes there will be a $17.5 trillion output gap relative to its projections from January. This is $1.8 trillion more than it thought less than two months ago and underscores the need for additional stimulus legislation.

Budget Committee Republicans have refused to hold a hearing on the Trump Budget. Today, we wrote a letter to Chairman Enzi expressing our frustration that our constituents have been denied the opportunity to see where their Senators stand on Trump's disastrous proposals.

As with so many other parts of this budget, any "investment" the president claims is often more than fully offset by other cuts - sometimes future cuts in the same program. Despite touting a NASA increase, Trump's budget calls for deep cuts to NASA over time.
