    2/14 UPDATE: Here’s the President’s proposed budget:

    The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations just released a series of proposed cuts to the Federal budget, which I have included below.

    1 – Is your program included?

    2 – What would these kinds of cuts likely mean in terms of the impact not only on government jobs, but also in terms of losses to citizens who benefit from these programs?

    3 – How would you make the case to keep them?

    NOTE: We are holding a LIVE CHAT in tandem with The Washington Post next Tuesday, February 15 from 11a – 12p ET to discuss the President’s budget, due to be released on Monday.
