U.S. budget ax threatens successful AIDS program in Africa


Washington (CNN) - The Biblical story of Lazarus is happening again in Africa. At least it looks that way.

One moment, men, women and children suffering from AIDS are lying at death's door, barely able to move, open their eyes, or speak. Then a few days or weeks later, they are walking, talking, laughing; truly appearing to have come back from the dead.

    Hey – those corporations need more money for bonuses and campaign money to buy our politicians. Suck it up Buttercup, that's the freedom of a Republican/TeaParty led House of Representatives making the money choices. Join the elderly and the poor that spent their money for decades building a retirement here in the good ole U. S. of GObP.

    Instead of cutting aid where it is really needed, why don't our overpaid congressmen and senators take pay cuts. They should also be paying some of or all of the cost of their health care like most Americans. We need to help alleviate aids in Africa just as we need to take care of poor Americans. Some things are a no-brainer.
