CBPP will take a break over the long Thanksgiving weekend, but we’ll be back on our regular schedule on Monday. This week at CBPP, we focused on federal taxes, health, and housing.

  • On health, Edwin Park pointed out that President Trump’s disaster relief request doesn’t address any of Puerto Rico’s Medicaid needs. Matt Broaddus summarized a new study that found children are much likelier to receive preventive care when their parents enroll in Medicaid.

  • On housing, Will Fischer explained how the House and Senate tax plans would cut affordable housing now, and set the stage for deeper cuts later.
