In America, the federal government spends 21 times more money on AIDS as we do on cancer. It spend 78 times more money on AIDS as we do on heart disease. Anti-stroke funding? AIDS gets 97 times more money.

As reported in the New York Post, “the Ryan White Act mandates taxpayer handouts to HIV/AIDS victims of about $1.2 billion a year. We have no remotely similar program for victims of any other disease.”

All this money for a disease that the World Health Organization’s top HIV expert says is “largely confined to gay men, drug addicts and prostitutes and their clients,” i.e. largely preventable.

Try to get that funding cut to fund cancer and be called homophobic.
