Summary Table of Non-Duplicate Proposals for Republican Candidates
The Republicans have now held nine debates (with another one scheduled for tonight) during which the five candidates left standing have made a combined total of 79 proposals that could impact spending. Four of the candidates would, on net, reduce outlays ranging from $18 billion to $100 billion per year while one would increase outlays by $170 billion, and each of them have several proposals whose costs or savings could not be determined. The table below summarizes the net change on spending resulting from their policy agendas as laid out in the debates.
