Hi, everyone. This week, Congress will debate the Fiscal Year 2016 budget. Many amendments to budget legislation will be offered during what is sure to be a very busy week on Capitol Hill.

A particularly harmful amendment was introduced today by Senators Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV). Amendment 667 would prevent people from receiving disability and unemployment benefits simultaneously. This amendment could be voted on as soon as tonight.

Here is some more information concerning this from the Consortium for Persons with Disabilities http://buff.ly/1xzE7f1

If you feel so inclined, contact your senators to let them know how you feel on this issue.
