Summary Restoring Fiscal Sanity, a group of Brookings scholars with high-level government experience provide an overview of the countrys likely medium- and long-term spending needs and the resources available to pay for them. They propose three alternative fiscal paths that are more responsible than the current path. One plan emphasizes spending cuts, the second emphasizes revenue increases, and a third is a balanced mix between the two.
