I have a couple of concerns with this. First, these biotech companies expect to
make a ton of money with their products, but they want free money to develop the
products, without any expectation of any pay back in kind. Second, if they
really have potential products that have commercial value, why don't they
crowd fund, or seek other sources of funding? Why should the tax payers always
be expected to fund projects that yields very little benefit to the general
Or you could just fund the NIH.
What? Tea Party Lee, "States Rights", "cut the deficit",
"pull yourself up by the bootstraps", etc. is going to the Feds for
money, after Trump cuts the budget? Seems hypocritical.
