Saving the American Dream

Decades ago, politicians promised Baby Boomers lavish health and retirement benefits, but provided inadequate means to pay for them. Now we are faced with the consequences of their neglect.

Our national debt equals nearly 70 percent of GDP and is rapidly growing. Medicare and Social Security face over $40 trillion in long-term unfunded obligations. We cannot leave these burdens for our children and grandchildren. To fuel growth in America’s economy today and in the future, we must begin to solve these problems now.

In Saving the American Dream, experts at The Heritage Foundation offer a detailed plan to redesign entitlement programs, simplify taxes, make health care affordable, and end government overreach. The result? The Heritage plan would balance the budget in 10 years—and keep it balanced permanently.

This report features seven full-color charts and offers Heritage’s Plan to save the ever-appealing American dream.
