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.
