Ryan White AIDS Fund Expires
http://www.365gay.com/newscon05/09/093005whiteFund.htm

The Ryan White Act - the federal fund that helps provide critical care and treatment to hundreds of thousands of Americans with HIV and AIDS - expires at midnight tonight.

If the act is not reauthorized or at least extended hundreds of HIV/AIDS care facilities across the country could be in danger of closing or cutting back on their operations.

Congress is not expected to look at extending or reauthorizing funding for the act for several months. Even then, the Bush White House has not provided for any increase in funding to take into consideration the cost of inflation. Funding for the fund has been flatlined for several years.


this is a disaster!

how many people will die because of this

1. The conservative line --
People will die? Well, maybe they should have thought about that before shooting up or having gay sex!

3. Never mind that White himself was a victim of contaminated
transfusion.

Makes no difference to them. If you have aids, it's because god hates you.
