Priorities

In 2016, our government gave $26.4 million for clinical trials in childhood cancer.  That is 2% of the number we give to adult cancers.

At the same time, we gave $170 million for the distribution of free condoms in central Africa.


I was told that this was comparing apples to oranges.  So I looked it up.  We gave $440 million in subsidies to U.S. apple and orange growers.

We prove our priorities with our wallets.
