President Biden's budget proposal drops the Hyde Amendment

I suppose we knew this was coming, but it's still striking to see:

U.S. President Joe Biden’s proposed 2022 budget omits a ban on federal funding for most abortions that has been part of government spending bills for decades.

The budget, released Friday, makes no mention of the "Hyde Amendment," first passed in 1976, which has been included in federal spending bills since.

When X is publicly funded, a common result is more X.
