Mandatory spending -- Discretionary spending -- Revenues -- Health.
"This volume presents 115 options that would decrease federal spending or increase federal revenues over the next decade ... The options cover many areas-ranging from defense to energy, Social Security, and provisions of the tax code. The budgetary effects identified for most of the options span the 10 years from 2017 to 2026 (the period covered by CBO's March 2016 baseline budget projections), although many of the options would have longer-term effects as well. Chapters 2 through 5 present options in the following categories: Chapter 2: Mandatory spending other than that for health-related programs; Chapter 3: Discretionary spending other than that for health-related programs, Chapter 4: revenues other than those related to health; Chapter 5: Health-related programs and revenue provisions. Chapter 6 differs from the rest of the volume; it discusses the challenges and the potential budgetary effects of eliminating a Cabinet department."--Page 1.
