Hey Tony Snow, just a few comments for you today…
The Bush administration has taken credit for increased funding on cancer research. This my friend is a lie and you off all people should know this. A lie that is propagated by George W. Bush and his official liars known as his press secretaries. Liars like you.
While it is true that funding for cancer research increased during the early part of the Bush reign they were a result of policies that were in place during the Clinton era. Your boss, George W. Bush proposed a $40 million CUT in cancer research funding for his 2007 budget alone. Add that to the extra carcinogens in our environment that have found a friend in the Bush administration and have been allowed to flourish under the protection of obliterated environmental regulations, thanks to the Bush administration, and you have a wonderful situation in which cancer can grow!
18,000 Americans die every year for the simple reason that they do not have health insurance. Hey Tony, do you know that that means? It means that the health policies under your boss’s administration are six times more dangerous to the American people every year than 9/11 was once! This is not to say past administrations were wonderful but a few of them at least tried to look as if they actually cared about the American people!
I’m sorry Tony, but while I wish you no harm and I think cancer is a terrible thing, I am having a hard time mustering up sympathy for the spokesperson of an administration that has worked so hard to make cancer death more available to the little people…you know…American citizens!Â Â Think about it!
