Human Needs Report: President’s FY16 Budget Request Paves Road for Needed Investments
This week the Coalition on Human Needs released a special edition of the Human Needs Report analyzing the President’s FY2016 budget request. The report provides an overview of the White House budget with sections on taxes, revenues, and select departmental funding that most directly impact low-income and other disadvantaged populations.
The President’s budget is built from the recognition that America’s middle class has suffered serious losses, and that the routes to a middle class living standard are increasingly blocked. The budget takes modest but useful steps to create jobs and economic growth. These steps, along with making education a priority and ending sequestration, help turn America away from the dangerous path of disinvestment in human needs programs and toward shared prosperity and more opportunity for all. See below for the full analysis and links to each section of this special edition.
