Budget & Appropriations: President’s budget for FY 2021 released

Pres. Donald Trump released his budget request for  the fiscal year (FY 2021). The budget contains many of the same harmful proposals for people with disabilities that it has in past years, primarily cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security as well as many of the discretionary programs that people with disabilities rely on for their health and well-being.
