Group Seeks to Axe NIH Funding as China Gets $

Full story: Fox News

A conservative group is calling on Congress to temporarily suspend funding to the National Institutes of Health after releasing a study that found the agency wasted half a billion dollars in taxpayer money on "bizarre projects," and gave more than $90 million to China , America's largest creditor, over the last decade for other research.

THIS is the kind of thing that fuels groups like the Tea Party and I agree with them.

Cut all the pork, no need to raise taxes if all the foolish expenditures like this, for example, are no longer funded with tax payers money.

National Institute of Health does a lot of good research and has good reputation. FoxNews is entertainment, sensationalism oriented, Its reputation questionable. Definitely needs more investigation.

The potential for corruption without accountablity is tremendous.

Yesterday we learned that 'We can't handle the truth', Tonight we will learn that the Social Security Golden Parachute is really a lead balloon.
Life is not a beach in the Dominican Republic for most of us, it is the Okefenokee Swamp at gator feeding time.
