This is for all those people who say that the Government should stick to the very basic things outlined in the Constitution:
It was announced today that scientists have achieved a medical breakthrough, a vaccine that provides an almost one in three protection from the HIV virus.
“Even though the benefit is modest, ‘it’s the first evidence that we could have a safe and effective preventive vaccine,’ Col. Jerome Kim said in a telephone interview. He helped lead the study for the U.S. Army, which sponsored it with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.”
Read that last sentence. Who did the study? YOUR Government. No, they didn’t create the drugs, but they have been instrumental in the fight to control diseases. Our tax dollars at work, helping to stop the spread of this terrible disease. Anyone want to say saving millions of lives is a waste of our tax dollars?
