CBO: 2020 Long-Term Budget Outlook

The Congressional Budget Office released its 2020 Long-Term Budget Outlook.

"By the end of 2020, federal debt held by the public is projected to equal 98 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) -- its highest level since shortly after World War II. If current laws governing taxes and spending generally remain unchanged, debt would first exceed 100 percent of GDP in 2021 and would reach 107 percent of GDP, its highest level in the nation's history, by 2023, CBO projects. Debt would continue to increase in most years thereafter, reaching 195 percent of GDP by 2050."
