Pelosi wrote in a $335 million provision for the STD Prevention clause to the unethical bailouts.
According to the smug mental midgets on the left:
"Some reasons that increased funding for STD prevention specifically will ultimately save the United States money:
– Increase workforce productivity. More than 56,000 people become infected with HIV/AIDS each year. The CDC estimates that the new infections cost the country $56 billion in medical care and lost productivity.
– Lower health industry costs. STDs, some of the most preventable diseases, cost the U.S. health care system as much as $15.3 billion annually.
– Lower federal government costs. The federal government is expected to spend $12.3 billion on HIV/AIDS-related medical care in 2009."
Let's see how well this worked out for San Francisco...
"San Francisco health officials reported an alarming increase in new syphilis cases last year after years of declines."
Wait. Why such an expensive provision in the first place if STD's were already on the decline. You can go to Planned Parenthood to get this information and free condoms. We already subsidize that.
The Center for Disease control and Prevention already has the scoop on how to prevent STD's. Why did Pelosi feel as if she needed to spend more money at a "problem" to begin with?
So this was the outcome of the spending...
"New syphilis cases rose 55.8 percent in 2008 over the previous year, San Francisco public health officials reported."
DID PELOSI EMBEZZLE THE MONEY? WHY THE HORRIBLE RESULT?
So basically, the more money we give to Pelosi for her STD Prevention, the more people will end up with STD's in her own district. This causes me to fear what the result of Obama's Healthcare reform will be. Now the taxpayers will be stuck paying for the reckless behavior of STD infected San Francisco idiots.
Although it's only .03% of the useless bailout, that $335 million could have been spent on interest to China, it could have been spent on helping people who have lost homes, it could have been spent to help those that lost their jobs due to the subprime collapse.
PELOSI--->SHAME ON YOU!
Here are the idiots who voted for the bailout with the $335 million STD prevention
ROLL CALL FOR THE BAILOUT VOTE!
Remember, John Dennis is running against Pelosi in 2010 in the 8th District of California, which is otherwise known as San Franciso.
SF, you have no excuses this time!! VOTE PELOSI OUT!!
