Combating Autism: What the hell wrong from with Senators DeMint and Coburn Edition

Combating Autism: What the hell is wrong with Senators DeMint and Coburn Edition

Critical provisions of The Combating Autism Act expire September 30.  The current bill is a continuation of the Combating Autism Act that President George W. Bush signed into law in 2006 and was passed unanimously last week by the GOP controlled US House of Representative.  Think about that. There was not one person in the House who stood in opposition to the bill!  None.
...
To put things in perspective, the per year outlay of $231 million a year that is being sought here for autism equals about what we spend in Afghanistan every 36 hours!  We spend in 4.5 days in Afghanistan saving face, what we would spend in 3 years on autism research.
