“Just got a phone call from a very upset program admin at our local visiting nurse association, which provides housekeeping services for elderly and disabled. She was in tears, choking up repeatedly, as she explained the reason for her call. “We have just been notified,” she said, “that Trump has eliminated our funding for this program. And we have no way of replacing that funding.”
The funding for the housekeeping assistance had already been reduced a few months ago; now it’s just gone. Also gone are the jobs of those who provided that much needed help.
Just one more example of the cruelty of the Trump administration and his complicit cronies in congress. “
