"global aids", and that the other guys (republicans) were not.
The following link begs to differ. what say you?
It we want to spend money for this problem, why not put the monies in methods that would attempt to solve it. It's quite evident that one factor that many here will not be familiar with is Spiritual Taboos in Africa for instance. did you know that if a Father of a family contracts HIV/AIDS, it is believed the the "gods" will have favor on him if he has sex with his younger daughter and he will be cured from the dreaded disease…Now, we have two with the killing disease. So where has our monies and funding been gone all these years to educate South Africa and there regressing instead of progressing….So our plan to fund them for help is evidently not working on a Government level. Missions and contributions from churches are having better luck as they go and personally teach and work with the afflicted.
I say you linked to an opinion piece that lacks facts…
PepFar was funded at $48 billion for 2009 to which Obama added $3 Billion. Bush from 2004 to 2008 funded a total of $15 Billion. $51 Billion is substantially more than $15 Billion,
shouldnt people who get aids, shouldnt they take som eresponsibility for their own health and welfare. After all I am sure missionaries were sent to Africa, and did they listen, or were the missionaries laughed at, when they tried to teach them to keep it covered.?
So you don't like Obama because he's not doing enough to fight global AIDS?
Any money spent to try and stop the spread of AIDS in African is twice as bad as not spending it at all.
Say I that Bush had some serious love for AIDS.
