Medical and Scientific Research Funding
A healthy population is one that achieves on many fronts. It is my position that with continuing regular investment in medical and scientific research, as opposed to cutbacks and delays that hamper invention and discovery, the United States can maintain our position as the world’s leader in medical and scientific related innovation, ensuring we have a healthy population for generations to come.
Indeed, a strong commitment to long-term investment in medical and scientific research ultimately saves our country far more in dollars and resources than what we might otherwise spend treating caring for those who are ill.
When I’m in Congress, I will work to ensure that the United States remains at the forefront of medical and scientific research. I will always be an advocate for a healthy population. Ensuring that the wealthiest country in the world has the healthiest possible population should be one of government’s highest priorities.
