McCain Aiming to Eliminate Prostate Cancer Research

I have always tried to avoid the politics of prostate cancer but in this case, it cannot be avoided.

Please go read the most recent copy of “Zero Hour”, the newsletter from

This are just a few excerpts:

The Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program is a central component of the war on cancer and has been responsible for helping to move nearly all prostate cancer drug advancements in the last five years.
If Senator John McCain, a war veteran, former POW and 3-time cancer survivor, gets his way, more than $300 million in medical research will be eliminated from the Defense Appropriations bill to help pay for the Iraqi police force.

Though I am a big proponent of smaller government and less spending, this is ridiculous.

Please go read the newsletter and if you agree, please act!
