    Cutting the NIH funding is an excellent way to damage the momentum and major competitive advantage that the USA has over other countries...

    Indeed.
    Even a 'cheap' lifestyle drug at say $2K for the mildly afflicted to fix them, for a million people is a couple of billion dollars return.
    Add in the reduced spending on healthcare and improved tax revenue from this group, and it's rather a lot more.

    There won't be a $5 million cut, that's just Donald style of starting with something outrageous.
    A 100% cut to NCCIH would be a great thing though. There's already been about 20 times (that's 2000%) as much spent on research attempting to legitimize bull s--t as has been spent on us.
