Not because I don't think it's worthwhile, but because the AIDS research lobby won't rest until the reason the funding was cut gets repealed.
What do I mean?
Well, we recently learned that those with pre-existing conditions will not be covered under mandatory Medicaid, or Obamacare (and yes, I think the smug spoiled child deserves to have his name attached to the piece of shit he passed). We're also pretty sure that employer-provided health care is going to start showing up as income on W2 forms.
Another probable effect that hasn't been mentioned is that, with the government putting caps on what pharmaceutical companies can charge for new drugs and new treatments, funding for research is going to dry up.
And it's going to happen before anything can come of the most recent discovery: a type of antibody that kills 91% of the different strains of HIV/AIDS.
So yes, I hope the research funding for that dries up faster than anything else, so that the gay lobby can be the loud part of the coalition of all the sane people working to get this bad law repealed.
