The Obama administration plans to push for a $156M increase in funding for Alzheimer's research over the next two years after estimates for Alzheimer care in the U.S. range as high as $20T for the next 40 years with baby boomers squarely in harm's way. So far drug firms have only been able to deliver stopgap measures - instead of a cure - but big names NVS, JNJ, PFE, FRX are working on developing a market-changing home run treatment, as well as smaller-cap players such as AVXL, PRANA, AEN, NYMX, and ILNS.

    "...estimates for Alzheimer care in the U.S. range as high as $20T for the next 40 years..."

     

    I see. So this increase in spending actually will save money.

     

    We know where this is going. The biggest savings of all will be to eliminate social undesireables--abortion on the front end and euthansia on the back end.

     

    Reuters reports that "Congressman Boehner, pressed for comment, stated 'we can't afford one hundred and fifty six million, but there's support for one hundred and fifty five five.'"

     

    This will get ugly in the end.

    Health care is better than the GOP's endless wars.
