Wow, what a spin Byran put on the dollar figure for research. 26 billion he said this year alone...til you read the article he links to, which says
"Yet HIV/AIDS will receive over $3 billion in the 2011 federal research budget.
Less than breast cancer. I suppose his next suggestion might be mandatory mastectomies for all women. Problem solved, eh?
Here's where the money is:
"Of the approximately $26 billion budgeted this year for HIV/AIDS, only 11% will go for research and 3% for prevention. The rest is care, cash and housing assistance."
