The President's Budget (part 2)

Well, if I read this correctly(see page 429 [or 3 of 49 in this file]), the President is recommending only a $10 million increase for the Ryan White CARE Act with slightly more than half of that being earmarked for the AIDS drug assistance programs.

This amount will not be adequate to help Texas maintain current services for its clients in the Texas HIV Medication Program. It will effectively constitute another cut for other services provided under the CARE Act.

Ouch!
