President Obama's Fiscal Year 2013 Budget

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

 In his Budget message to Congress yesterday, President Obama wrote, ""We built this Budget around the idea that our country has always done best when everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules."" He called this a ""make-or-break moment"" for the middle class and wrote that this budget reflects his belief that we must rise to meet this moment.

    Part of rising to meet this moment involves making sure unplanned pregnancy does not jeopardize teens' and young people's chances to be successful. The 2013 budget reflects this commitment by maintaining funding for important programs working to prevent teen and unplanned pregnancy.
