On the @POTUS 2017 Budget: Reflections from @thebudgetguy & other thoughts....

Our team has been following the debate in Washington as the President's Budget was just announced. The proposed cuts are devastating and the impacts profound on all Ordinary Faces.    What was striking us was a Recent headline on CNN on how according to the Trump Budget, 2+2=7.   Below is an excerpt of the discussions on this that underscores the profound challenges laid out by the proposed budget:  




Today, the White House released a full budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2018, an expanded version of the Administration's "skinny budget," which was released earlier this year.
The Administration's full budget proposal provides the funds necessary to shut down the Corporation for National and Community Service over the course of the next year. If enacted, this budget would eliminate federal support for national service programs and have a devastating impact on the communities they serve every day. Click here to read our full statement on the White House budget proposal.
The fate of national service is in the hands of Congress. 
Here are two ways you can help right now:
1. Send a Tweet or share a post on Facebook about the President's proposal.
2. Send an e-mail to your representatives urging them to protect national service programs in your community.
This is a critical moment and we're counting on you.
Thanks for staying with us in this fight. 
Yours in Service,
