Mammography has been declared by the American Cancer Society as ineffective as a screening device for the early detection of breast cancer. The Radiological Society of North America has said that mammograms are killing women (X-radiation).

Mammograms are ineffective and dangerous, so these cutbacks represent a boon to the women, but a bust to those who want to ignore the dangers and continue reaping income at womens' expense.

You obviously didn't read the article, cretin. The cuts to this program are due cuts in the STATE budget not federal. Do you know the difference, imbecile? Of course if the feds step in and make up the difference you will then biotch about "our hard earned" tax dollars going to help poor people which we all know is the republicans worst nightmare. After all, those people are poor because they choose to be.Right? You get the Idiot of the day award.

This program does NOT need to be reduced...
if every public employee would reduce their
receiving public funds...more people could be
employed and programs would not be reduced or
cut...
tell the greedy self interest groups to stop
taking taxpayers money just for themselves but
to help others.
