Last night on John Stossel’s Fox Business program, five public policy organizations including The Heritage Foundation competed in the “Battle of the Budgets” to determine the best plan to restore America’s finances.
Stossel awarded Heritage’s Saving the American Dream plan the prize for best budget.
During one segment, Heritage’s Stuart Butler went head to head with the American Enterprise Institute’s Andrew Biggs to compare and contrast their plans.
During Butler’s explanation of Saving the American Dream, Stossel interrupted Butler to make clear that Heritage’s plan “cuts more than every other plan.”
“And I should be clear,” Stossel said, “you balance the budget eventually. None of the other plans do.”
Butler and the Heritage plan was awarded the “Emmy” for best budget plan.
Tell us in the comments: Do you think Heritage can save the American Dream?
