George Bush (and Congress) doesn't care about AIDS victims either

Appearently the Ryan White Act, the federal fund that helps provide treatment to thousands of Americans with HIV and AIDS, expired over the weekend. And Congress isn't expected to review this again for several months. That means that many HIV/AIDS care facilities across the country could be in danger of closing or cutting back on their services, and more people will be denied the services they need and risk dying. And appearently the mainstream media doesn't care to report on this.

If we're going bring on an 80s revival, don't you think that we ought to revive ACT-UP as well? Wouldn't that be a totally 80s thing to do?

Thanks to Mental Hopskotch for providing this.

They are sort of just following the "Reagan legacy".

I agree. It's horrible.
