senate Bill S. 292

Should the Feds Reauthorize & Expand Research on Childhood Cancer?

Argument in favor

This commonsense, bipartisan bill would authorize research that will lead to better child-focused cancer treatments, improve tracking of childhood cancer incidences, and provide additional resources for survivors of, and those impacted by, childhood cancer.

Budget dust. Go for it. Who is the asshole that will vote no on this? However, it doesn’t stop the need for a universal single payer healthcare system. All the research in the world won’t help if people can’t afford the price of healthcare.

Additionally, congress should make health the universal right it already is.

Argument opposed

This bill shouldn’t expand the authority of federal agencies to conduct research aimed at improving treatments of childhood cancer, track incidences of childhood cancer, or provide resources to survivors.

This bill shouldn’t expand the authority of federal agencies to conduct research. The introduction of the Government artificially depresses innovation in the private sector. There are many organizations that are privately fund that would pay for all of this research and more. People are willing to donate to this cause as it provides value to society. We need to depend on each other to step in and drive the innovation in things like cancer research instead of depending on the government who has shown time and time again to be poor stewards of our tax dollars.

I am definitely not against research on childhood cancers. But when a Republican is presenting this bill it makes me skeptical 🤨. It just appears government is stepping out of bounds with this. Different childhood cancer agencies are already working together and if they are not they should not receive funding. I am sorry but why hasn’t this bill come up before with the other party?

No, these same universities use the money provided by the People then sell to big pharmaceutical to sell to the People. Sometimes at crazy prices and sometimes stealing personal info or genomes from those same People!

    If his kids had cancer he would want this research. Oh I forgot, he will take them to Europe for the best treatment. Like Cheney who moved ahead on the heart transplant list yet his heart is wax cold! Funny how corrupt politicians make decisions over our lives while doing the exact opposite. By the way. It is NOT a waste of money getting to the truth on interference in our election. If this president,cabinet, family and friends are committing treasonous acts. AMERICA NEEDS TO KNOW. NEVER HAVE WE HAD A PRESIDENT SLIME OUR NATIONAL SECURITY, appoint corrupt inexperienced people and interfere in his own investigation UNCHECKED! WHERE IS YOUR OUTRAGE!!! Republicans would have been in front of EVERY MIC AVAILABLE INSTEAD THE CORRUPT ARE DOING IT WHILE OUR DEMS REMAIN SILENT PROTECTING THEIR JOBS INSTEAD OF THIS COUNTRY!!!

    All cancers are tragic, but childhood cancer is particularly heartrending. Like all cases we need to make sure we study childhood cancers closely and help curb the incidence rate.

    Yes but not as a federal arm. Make it a support method for entities already in the field, such as St. Jude. They already have an extensive base of research and to fund them better is much more advantageous from both a financial, and a results standpoint.

    Yes, we need to show authentic support for children living in this nation. Especially in matters of their right to life. If we truly want to end the violence then we need to model respect for our children’s lives and their right to a future which includes opportunities to realize their dreams.
