Episode Description

Join us this week on Capital Thinking with host Kevin O'Neill as we are joined by policy analysts to examine President Obama's fiscal year 2012 budget in several key areas by starting with an overview of the selective spending cuts and increases for other initiatives which could yield long-term payoffs in economic growth. Next, Jared Fleisher and Jessica Pung will discuss the happenings on the transportation front, specifically from agencies such as the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration. Following that, we will switch gears to education as Jessica will be joined by Amy Budner to highlight important changes in K-12 and higher education areas. Then, Todd Tuten will address funding issues in the area of healthcare, such as the budget's effect on Medicare and Medicaid and the health reform implementation. Finally, we will hear from Tim Vanderver and Catherine Buell regarding budgetary changes in housing and urban development.
