Our government spends a lot of money. $10 billion is essentially a rounding error in the Federal budget. The problem with that is that even the tiniest amount of government spending can have a huge impact on people’s lives. It’s important that our elected officials do a better job of spending our money on the right things. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities is a Washington, DC based non-profit that “conducts research and analysis to help shape public debates over proposed budget and tax policies and to help ensure that policymakers consider the needs of low-income families and individuals in these debates.” This is an organization that sees the people in the rounding errors.
Ezra Klein called the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities the “fastest, fairest, and smartest policy think tank in Washington.” That’s a big compliment considering how many think tanks there are in DC. If you want to judge for yourself, take a look at CBPP’s Research Areas. They cover a lot of important areas, and if you need a primer on some of the basics that the organization focuses on, check out this page. Since they’re a think tank, their research is their results. If you’d like to help them develop more research, take a look at the CBPP’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Housing Voucher Project Coordinator and a Research Assistant. They also have a State Policy Fellowship Program.
