Family Planning in the Federal Budget

While we're all talking about increases in the budget Obama's team proposed, I'd like to take a minute to note that the budget also proposes expanding access to family planning under Medicaid, the exact measure that was stripped from the stimulus package. It is also actually going to save money over time. It'll save $10 million in 2010, $25 million in 2011, $45 million in 2012, and so on until the estimated total savings of $190 million in 10 years.
