Obama's 2014 budget seeks to improve economy and provide HIV treatment

President Barack Obama recently released the Fiscal Year 2014 Budget, which includes plans to boost the economy by strengthening the middle class and investments in prevention programs for HIV/AIDS.

The budget plan details a balanced way to decrease the national deficit by $1.8 trillion, which the President promised to House Speaker Boehner; this will help achieve the larger goal of decreasing the national deficit by $4 trillion. The new budget does not require any additional funding and can be implemented without conflicting with larger cut-backs.

In the President's plan, jobs are attracted by investing in better manufacturing infrastructure and people, which will create more innovative, competitive products by cultivating better minds. Obama also plans to change some of the regulations for business owners to better allow small American businesses to succeed.

Americans will be equipped fill new jobs through an initiative to invest into better education, from pre-k to post-graduate job training, to give American citizens an educational advantage over their international competition.

Those working full-time will be ensured a comfortable standard of living due to a new minimum wage of $9 an hour. They will also be benefit from an increased focus on preventative medical initiatives, such as HIV/AIDS prevention programs.

The budget plan sets aside funding for organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Ryan White Program and the National Institutes of health to provide resources for further HIV/AIDS prevention research and better implementation of existing programs. The plan also organized specific ways to assist the veteran community, those with assisted living and general discrimination against infected populations.
