Is the premise here that government, if funded, would save lives?


The specific premise is that if NIH is funded the child cancer patients currently receiving chemo will continue to receive chemo. No funding, no chemo. The GOP wants to fund these kids' treatment. Reid doesn't because it is a bargaining tool he feels he can't lose. Sux for the kids.

Wrong, the premise was "we are going to play Political games with people's lives, and did you not get the memo to not ask theses type questions"...Watch it again.....

lol at GOP using sick children as a political weapon


Just yesterday Democrats were talking about how horrible it is that the NIH is only able to process about 90% of its caseload because of the shutdown and that one of the things that had to get cut was new enrollees in clinical trials (including children with cancer).

It's not even that. People currently receiving treatment will continue receiving treatment. It is that the NIH isn't taking any new patients.

And Harry Reid apparently hates kids with cancer.

...but fully funding Obamacare is totally worth shutting down the government for.

re: Harry Reid: Why would we want to save kids from cancer


When is enough enough? These jackasses barricaded the WWII Memorial for absolutely no reason, and now they refuse to give an inch on the NIH. What's next? Are they going to barricade St Jude's to really make us feel the pain?

I never believed in that whacko theory that some humans are reptiles, but Reid's behavior is causing me to do a rethink.

No, that's not right. Patients already under treatment will continue treatment. New patients will not be taken until funding is reinstated.

I know I know that line gets passed around here like a cheap hooker. But a CNN reporter throwing it in his face? That is gold, Jerry, gold.

You need to chill out, I was just adding clarification to an answer to someone's question. My statement had no ulterior motive.

That's right Harry. Once you've seen one kid's cancer ward, you've seen them all.
