Does the 2010 Federal Budget Help Americans Build Assets?

The New America Foundation has issued a new report, "The Assets Report 2009: An Assessment of President Obama’s FY 2010 Budget and the Changing Landscape of Asset-Building Opportunities for Low- and Moderate-Income Americans". The report looks at:
the current and potential landscape of opportunities for Americans to acquire assets and move up the economic ladder. We examine recently enacted legislation and President Barack Obama’s Fiscal Year 2010 budget proposals. The programs we identify help Americans acquire assets for postsecondary education, homeownership, entrepreneurship, savings and investment, and retirement security. Such programs are supported by direct spending or subsidies provided through the tax code.
For policies to improve family economic success.
