The federal budget deficit has exceeded $1 trillion in each of the last four fiscal years (FY2009-FY2012). Concern over these large deficits, as well as the long-term trajectory of the federal budget, resulted in significant debate during the 112th Congress over how to achieve meaningful deficit reduction and how to implement a plan to stabilize the federal debt. Numerous expiring provisions, across-the-board spending cuts, and other short-term considerations having a major budgetary impact, were scheduled to take effect at the very end of 2012 or in early 2013. This combination of policies, estimated to reduce the deficit by $502 billion between FY2012 and FY2013, was referred to as the fiscal cliff. Had these policies taken effect, the economy would have returned to recession in FY2013. On Jan. 2, 2013, President Obama signed into law the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (ATRA; H.R. 8 as enacted), which addressed many of these tax and spending policies. The provisions of ATRA were estimated to increase the budget deficit by $330 billion in FY2013 and nearly $4 trillion over the FY2013-FY2022 period. Contents of this report: Overview of Budget Deficit Issues Surrounding the Fiscal Cliff; Major Fiscal Policy Issues Addressed in ATRA; Major Fiscal Policy Issues Not Addressed in ATRA; Other Short-Term Considerations; The Budget Deficit and the Economy. Table. This is a print on demand report.
