Tiller’s Clinic Will Be Shut Down.

Thanks to commenter Jovan1984 for the heads up.

$72.5 billion in cuts to programs for people with disabilities – most prominently, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), which already gives people with disabilities the absolute bare minimum they need to live a decent standard of living. Trump’s massive cuts to SSDI break his campaign promise never to cut Social Security. $143 billion in cuts to federal student loan programs – and it would ...
