Boehner Proposal Would Slash Spending for NIH Research on Cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Diabetes

https://i2.wp.com/i37.photobucket.com/albums/e66/LarrytheDuck/TPM_Castaways/f2c411e2.gifHowdy folks… Nice site . . .

Somehow I’m not even surprised about that type of headline.

If you wish to read the entire report you will find a copy of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities Report over at the Yuku TPM Café Castaways site. This is the direct link to the blog post.

But as I said before, none of this crazy-talk is surprising in the least. Afterall I have no expectations that anything is going to change that comes out of the whacky-doodles.  I mean take a look at ol’  Huckleberry Huckabee jacking his jaw at the Value Voters Summit against insurance coverage for those who have pre-existing conditions. As reported by Brian Beutler over TPMDC, here’s how Brian reported the Huckster’s cornpone point:

“Suppose we applied that principle [to] our property insurance. And you can call your insurance agent and say, “I’d like to buy some insurance for my house.” He’d say, “Tell me about your house.” “Well sir, it burned down yesterday, but I’d like to insure it today.” And he’ll say “I’m sorry, but we can’t insure it after it’s already burned.” Well, no preexisting conditions.”

Here’s the audio from Media Matters

Getting the Word Out…

Synchronicity and I were talking in Chat the other night about John Boehner and ways that we could help prevent him from taking the House.  We suddenly came up with the brilliant idea to create a Facebook page.  So, without further ado, may I introduce you to it:


Yesterday we started with about 4 fans.  Today we have over a hundred.  Won’t you please visit the page if you haven’t done so already, and if you are a Facebook user please share it with your friends.  If you don’t use Facebook, please copy the link anyway and feel free to email it or to post it in comments around the web.  Synchronicity has been advertising it in comments at HuffPo and has gotten some great feedback.  We’d appreciate it if you’d help us in our efforts to get this link out.  Thanks so much.
