Forbes: What Seniors Need To Know About Trump’s 2021 Federal Budget (February 10, 2020)
President Trump’s proposed 2021 Federal Budget would cause serious harm to low income older adults. The budget proposal includes cuts to critical programs that serve low income older adults, including Social Security Disability Insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid. The budget would also cut funds to federal grant programs that would impact Meals on Wheels, utilities assistance, senior job programs, and legal aid for seniors. “This budget demonstrates the lack of commitment to the safety, security and needs of older adults in our community,” said Kevin Prindiville, Justice in Aging’s Executive Director.
