AIDS Funding: 'An Epidemic of Waste?'($1 billion in Fed $$$ Wasted)
CNSNews.com ^ | 2/15/02 | Matt Pyeatt

Posted on 02/15/2002 1:30:26 AM PST by kattracks

Washington (CNSNews.com) - AIDS activists will converge on Washington Friday, demanding more tax dollars for various prevention and treatment programs, but one government watchdog group says about $1 billion in federal AIDS money has already been wasted.

What's needed is wiser spending of AIDS-related money, not an increase in spending, according to the group, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW).

CAGW Thursday released its special report, "AIDS Programs: An Epidemic Of Waste," which systematically shows how federal funds meant for AIDS programs have allegedly been misallocated, mismanaged and wasted.

"Overall, we found about $1 billion, about 7.7 percent of the $13 billion in total federal AIDS funding, that is being mismanaged and wasted," Thomas A. Schatz, president of CAGW, said. "We believe that it would be more compassionate to take the money that is being wasted and provide it to the people who truly need it."

The CAGW report offers a detailed look at the history of AIDS in the United States, but it is the scathing assessment of the taxpayer-funded AIDS programs that stands out.

Included in the report are several examples of the misuse of federal funds. For example, Positive Force, a San Francisco AIDS prevention group, receives $1 million annually from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

According to CAGW, Positive Force offers flirting classes and, last July, hosted a workshop on how to have anal intercourse even while suffering from diarrhea. Diarrhea is a common side effect of the AIDS virus, according to the report.

On February 28, the Stop AIDS Project of San Francisco, which received nearly $700,000 from the CDC, will host "GUYWATCH: Blow by Blow," the CAGW report stated. The advertisement for the seminar reads, "What tricks do you want to share to make your man tremble with delight?"

Another alleged misuse of federal funding in the fight to stop AIDS occurred in Tampa Bay, Fla., where the non-profit Tampa Hillsborough Action Plan (THAP) "rang up nearly $1,000 in meal charges in a three-week period and were also afforded the use of sport utility vehicles," the CAGW said.

THAP's top executives also received four season tickets for Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tampa Bay Devil Rays and Tampa Bay Lightning professional sporting events, according to the report, at a time when "THAP owed nearly $25,000 in delinquent payroll taxes." THAP receives $450,000 a year from the federal government to provide housing to people with AIDS, the CAGW report shows.

Aids activist Wayne Turner, the co-founder of ACTUP DC! joined Schatz at Thursday's news conference and agreed it's necessary to stop the abuse of federal funds earmarked for AIDS programs.

"As an AIDS activist, someone who has lost a partner to AIDS, I can say that it is so important that people living with and dying from this disease have access to the services necessary to keep them alive," Turner said.

"We've been on the forefront of fighting for more money for AIDS and fighting for these programs and demanding passionate and humane treatment for those who suffer from this disease," Turner said. "But, there is another part of that coin when you ask for more money, which has been poorly addressed in the twenty years of the AIDS epidemic."

Turner said it was important to make sure the money was efficiently used.

"This is a federal problem. There is a federal responsibility to insure that AIDS money is spent appropriately and helps people," Turner said.

Turner brought along a tote bag, from which he pulled a water bottle, key chain and other trinkets that he said were paid for with AIDS funding. He called on AIDS programs to quit wasting money on such items and to start helping people.

"There are real people who are falling through the cracks in the system," Turner said.

Maybe I am just too logical, but why is the Federal government spending any money on this? Is it in the constitution? Is it really a national emergency? If it was something that was passed by breathing or insect bites, I could see it being a true epidemic, but AIDs, by and large, is passed by behavior.

On the other hand, if tax payer money is to be spent, do it on pure research or the building of top notch labs. Don't give it to non-scientist for social programs!!!

There are a lot of more people suffering from heart defects, cancer, and other non-voluntary problems(both straight and homosexuals), that is where most of the cash should be focused. JMO

Because Chutney ferrits are a powerful lobby (evidently)... either that or they havea a lot of dirt on the pols that they don't want made public seeing as how cancer is more a "get it without warning instead of spread-by-going-to-a-san-fran-bath-house threat.

This is an example of abuse and rightly condemned and ought to be officially investigated.

However, the first two allegations may or may not be 'abuse' as they are simply suggestions of scandal wherein the "conservative" audience will not ask for specific evidence, only recoil at gross suggestions. Is there any evidence a dime of taxpayer funds went to teach workshops on having anal sex while suffering diarrhea? And, frankly, with regards to the other "Positive Choice" allegation, many homosexuals could use *more* flirting (more old time heterosexual courting rituals) and less anonymous sex to prevent HIV transmission.

Again, I demand to know the specifics and where the money is going. We're being asked to assume taxpayers are paying for "Blow by Blow" seminars when the article does not establish whether these organizations have or use other monies to fund these programs.

Excluding the ending and Tampa Bay specifics, this is really just another divisive "conservative" anti-homosexual hit piece--a political trap--heavy on innuendo and light on facts.

Conservatives need to work harder to not bite at what, for some of them, are "hot-buttons" but which lack substance. They need to devote energy where the facts are shown. This sort of "reporting" is pathetic, even for choir-feeding propoganda.

Are those things in the Constitution? Seems to me you're using the "Constitutionalty" question as a smokescreen for your hatred of AIDS due to its link to homosexuals and/or IV drug users.

I agree federal dollars could be better spent on scientific research, including providing full funding to thoroughly screen the blood supply, than on "prevention" programs.

And, as a reminder that AIDS isn't strickly "voluntary", just this month we had a story of a Texan who contracted HIV through tainted blood needed during a surgery emergency last year. Yours is the sort of thinking which could potentially eliminate important areas of CDC investigation as well as publically funding for private viral research.

When I read the comments of some Freepers on this topic sometimes I think "conservative" really means what liberals contend: money whoring, science and public good ignoring bigot attempting to hide behind a cloke of piousness and false righteousness. It's no wonder W has had to attempt to redefine the image by adding on "compassionate" to the label.

and I think what it is, is an effort to get the CDC back under control, or get rid of it. From gun control to treatment of the "aids epidemic", the cdc is so out of control and off-the-wall, as to be unrecognizable as a government agency, or maybe too recognizable as a government agency, either way, if aids was really an epidemic what should the cdc be doing about it? What should we the uninfected be doing about it?

Speaking of the history of AIDS...

I wish someone would investigate the "officials" who decided against mandatory notification of sexual partners of AIDS patients. This procedure was carried out after the diagnosis other sexually-transmitted diseases.

Many lives could have been saved if sexual partners had been notified.

The big players in society are cocaine users, no? High divorce rates, unless the spouse is willing to put up with the adultry in exchange for the luxury... Cocaine increases the potentials of AIDS so quickly it's mind boggling. That was learned through a study.

No it isn't. You made your beds, now you sleep in them. Start a charity.

"There are real people who are falling through the cracks

It depends on the meaning of the word "cracks."

"As an AIDS activist, someone who has lost a partner to AIDS, I can say that it is so important that people living with and dying from this disease have access to the services necessary to keep them alive,"

Like STOP being queer classes.

I'd prefer to pay nothing to these people. They knew the risks. Nobody made them do it.
They had funding, and they didn't appreciate it, like the rest of the liberals.
Now tell the taxpayers 'thank you' for what they've done already, and be on your way.

via blood transfusion

This is really sad, but those who got AIDs from transfusions are probably dead by now, thanks to queers.
Blood is now tested to prevent AIDS transfer.

I'm pretty sure Washington did their own study on this, and said the classes were selling pornography. and endorsing sexual behavior rather than teaching prevention.
I believe they cut off their funding until they go back to AIDs prevention.That's what the money was SUPPOSE to be used for.

They(the queers) said they needed the porn and sex classes to draw the other queers to classes, otherwise no one came.
Maybe there's a thread on it. I probably read the article here.

Cocaine is expensive. Why not send the cocain money to an AIDs charity? Cocaine is illegal. It's another life "choice."

As far as "consernatives", we told them it was bad. We had classes to help them. Explained to them that homosexuality spreads AIDs, gave them Bibles. BUT,they didn't want help.
They want MONEY, money, money.
Don't blame that on us. We did our part.

I didn't say that. But the truth is that the PC pro-homosexual crowd is doing 99.9% of the screaming for a cure even though there is already a cure. It is called abstinence.

BTW, with the current levels of AIDS screening in donated blood, there are virtually no transfusion related infections. AIDS infection through heterosexual contact constitutes less than 3% of new cases each year. The vast majority of new cases each year come from intravenious drug users and homosexual men, who in fact DON'T BELIEVE THAT HIV CAUSES AIDS. It is BEHAVIOR that spreads AIDS, not lack of government funding.

Yes, it is a tragedy when people get AIDS from accidental exposure or through a cheating spouse, but there are many, many better ways to spend a billion dollars that will help find a cure for diseases with truly innocent victims. Childhood leukemia and cystic fibrosis are just two examples of research that could benefit greatly from a billion dollars in grant money.

Why not spend the money where it will help the MOST innocent victims rather than just the ones who scream loudest?

AIDS gets 10 times the federal dollars than does heart disease and cancer, which kill far more people. AIDS isn't even in the top ten list of killers of Americans.

With this in mind, tax dollars should go to something that is likely to both the most people, not some disease that affect only a fractional number of people inthis country.

AIDS is primarily transmitted by behavior - Behavior which most of us view as perverted.

Funding for AIDS is disproportionate to its impact on Americans, relative to diseases like cancer and heart disease, which kill far, far more people.

I think the government does have a role in funding basic scientific research; However, in the case of AIDS the funding decisions have been highly politicized, resulting in some economically irrational decisions, not the least of which are some of the examples cited in this article...

I have told this story here before and I'll tell it again because it provides insight into the mindset of the AIDS establishment. About ten years ago, a colleague told me that he and his wife were going to participate in an AIDs "dance-a-thon" at the Javitz Center in NYC and asked me to sign up as a sponsor. It worked like a March of Dimes Walk-a-Thon, i.e., participants enlisted sponsors to pledge a certain amount of money for every hour that the participants danced. I pledged a few dollars without hesitation. After the Dance-a-thon was over, my friend came around to collect my donation. I asked him how the Dance-a-Thon went and a look of disgust overcame him. He explained that men were openly engaging in oral sex in the men's room. I agree with what someone else suggested--that many of these AIDs activists are motivated not by compassion for the sick and dying--but by a desire to make their sexual activity "safe" again.

Don't tie drug users to sexual preference. As I said earlier, heterosexual high society... cocaine users are far more susceptible to the dangers of AIDS than any other sector.

You speak the truth. Just like PETA people are not so much concerned with saving animals, as they are punishing the "rednecks" they so despise. Otherwise, their membership money would go towards purchasing circus animals, or conservation land....and not just propoganda aimed at bilking pre-teens out of their allowance.

I have made this B@#$% on more than one thread and I guess I'll do it again. Millions of Americans have limited access to healthcare because they have no health insurance. I am in no way an advocate of a nationalized healthcare program, but if we have billions of dollars to throw around, why as you say, can't we do something to help the most innnocent?

Last night, on FoxNews - Hannity and Colms, Susan Estrich(sp) made the statement that the suiciderate among homosexual teens is "skyrocketing." She said this as a reply against a city in California wanting to put up pro family ads. She said these ads will make the homosexual teens feel worse about themselves and commit more suicide. Excuse me, but what the type of hay is stuffed into her head? Skyrocketing, even after hollyweird had put so many same sex couples into "positive" roles in tv and movies, Skyrocketed after all the pro samesex promos?

The first thought I had was, it seems they were better off before all the pro homosexual stuff started being marketed.

I am not unsympathetic to certain individuals who were contaminated by means beyond their control, but I get so sick and tired of everything boiling down to AIDS. Today, they were talking about the cloned cat could lead to something to do with AIDS. I saw one of the truth.com ads about cigarettes last night and though "You would never see an ad campaign like that about AIDS." It's sickening how the homosexual community runs around lisping that AIDS is not a homosexual disease, yet they are the one clamoring for the most money because they are the most adversely affected!

We spend more money on AIDS research than any other disease, even though other diseases, just as terrible, afflict more Americans.

My beautiful wife, mother to my three kids and queen of my heart, has MS. Another friend of ours, a lovely young woman, found out she had ovarian cancer and had a hysterectomy on the eve of her honeymoon.

Too bad their diseases are not as fashionable as AIDS. Then maybe they would get some research grants too.

P.S.: please pray for these wonderful women.

I've got to agree with you. Why we are throwing SO much money at a disease that people choose to transmit and could easily stop transmitting is ridiculous. It is comprable to spending Gazillions of dollars on a cure for gun shot wounds then encouraging everyone to feel free to play recklessly with loaded guns (put condoms over the barrels???). It just shows how much POWER the gay lobby has.

The funding should start and end with education on how AIDS is spread.

I remember that in the beginning of the AIDS epedemic, the City of San Francisco wouldn't tell the truth about how it was spread or shut down the bath houses. They wanted it both ways, to have the fun and if they didn't know maybe they wouldn't get the disease. If you don't educate and contact the partners what good is all the money spent?

In Africa they think that if they rape a virgin they will be healed. Running out of virgins and now going after the little girls. They need education but won't do it because it is politically incorrect.

Don't send my money there until this is resolved.

Self destruction, when the core cause is an abomination, should be encouraged.
