Funding for research on embryonic stem cells, Ron Johnson added, "would be top on the list for cuts."*Because the UW Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center's research is not both certain and 100% proven, I don't need to go any further.
Said Ron Johnson, visionary Man of Science.
And it's bad for business.
Read that article about clinical trials on spinal cord injuries conducted by a free market pharmaceutical company using a therapy developed from discoveries made at the University of Wisconsin, keeping in mind that the candidate Ron Johnson concurrently inveighs against health care reform, on the grounds it interferes with the research and development of cutting edge techniques and procedures.
That interference is the "greatest assault on [his] Freedom in [his] lifetime," candidate Johnson has regularly been known to declare.
Out on the trail, Ron Johnson often tells the story of his daughter's successful recovery from heart surgery, and cites those very grounds. So why would Ron Johnson promise to prevent these sufferers of severe spinal cord injuries from enjoying a similar opportunity?
Not only that but actually have it "be top on the list for cuts"?
