President Biden’s Fiscal Year 2025 Budget reflects his dedication to investing in America and its people, while also prioritizing the protection and strengthening of vital programs like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

These programs are essential pillars of support for millions of hardworking Americans who have contributed to them throughout their careers.

One of the key focuses of the budget is extending the life of the Medicare Hospital Insurance (HI) Trust Fund permanently. This ensures that Medicare remains stable and sustainable, providing essential healthcare coverage for seniors and individuals with disabilities.

Importantly, the budget rejects any proposals to cut benefits, ensuring that seniors and retirees can rely on the support they have earned over their lifetime of work.

Furthermore, the budget emphasizes the importance of fairness in the tax system by calling on the highest-income Americans to contribute their fair share.
