Senate To HIV Patients: "Fuck You"
Three -- count 'em -- three Democrats voted in the affirmative to transfer $60 million from an earmark for improvements to a Japanese garden at the CDC facility in Atlanta to HIV treatment. (11 Republicans also voted yay.)
Since I don't think that the Democratic party is pro-AIDS, the only explanation is that the Democrats are so fearful of having to give up their states' own abominable pork projects that they categorically refuse to do the manifestly right thing. This is a party that stands for absolutely nothing.
