Public Health Funding 

A group of public health and medical advocacy organizations have called for a 12% increase in public health spending in 2005. This is clearly needed, given how pathetic public health in most of this country is. The Bush, administration, of course has no interest in this, claiming that "there is plenty of money available to build the public health infrastructure" without increasing funding. Yeah, riiiiight.

Tommy Thompson says PH workers will have to "tighten our belts a little bit," but of course DoD and DHS, and let's not forget DHalliburton, are loosening theirs.

BushCo continues its War on Science.
