Some more money for HIV programs....maybe
« on: January 31, 2007, 10:12:17 PM »
No details yet and who knows if the politicians will actually pass this and Bush will sign...but some encouraging news...I hope

From the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/30/AR2007013001705.html

House and Senate Democratic leaders agreed yesterday to a $463 billion spending plan for the remainder of the fiscal year that would freeze many federal agencies at 2006 levels but include more money for veterans' health, education, scientific research, HIV programs and public parks, among other things.
And I wished for guidance, and I wished for peace
I could see the lightning; somewhere in the east
And I wished for affection, and I wished for calm
As I lay there - Nervous in the light of dawn

     Good news indeed.  However I'm not sure dumping more money into education is going to solve that problem.  The problem it seems to me (and admittedly I've not been inside a public school since I graduated from high school 37 years ago) is lowered standards and lack of discipline.  And I don't want to pay more taxes for public parks.  Those are 'nice-to-have' things but ought not to be budgeted on the backs of taxpayers, many of whom don't utilize them.  They should be paid for via fee-for-use.  I keep trying to get these points across to my County board of supervisors in relation to property taxes, which are a cancer on my checkbook.
     Anything to do with health and medical research...I firmly support.
