On Feb. 13, President Obama submitted his fiscal 2013 budget requests to Congress, the first step in the budget and appropriations process for fiscal 2013. We support the president’s call for increased integrity in the Medicare and Medicaid programs and continuing efforts to crack down on waste, fraud and abuse. We are concerned about the level of funding requested for affordable housing for seniors, as sufficient funding must be provided to cover not only existing federal obligations, but also to develop more units to meet the needs of a growing senior population. Older Americans Act programs that finance home- and community-based services also must have more resources to meet increasing needs. As Congress considers 2013 budget and spending bills over the coming months, we will work with them and the Obama administration to ensure appropriate resources for a healthy, ethical and affordable system of aging services.
