The sponsoring legislators said it best. "Its the least congress could do". Its a slap in the face. If they are going to name a STEM grant after someone, name it after a female scientific pioneer, not a politician. Better yet, keep it named what it is so that 3 years from now when someone wants to pull the plug on it, they have to say tjey are killing STEM, not some obscure memorial grant that can sit on the back page. It sounds like it was perhaps proposed with good intention, but its actually quite insulting.
