Sep. 14, 2018
Congress has approved a $2 billion raise, to $39.1 billion, for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in a 2019 spending bill approved by House of Representatives and Senate negotiators last night.
...
It includes $425 million more for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (bringing the total to $2.34 billion); a $100 million increase for the cancer moonshot, or $400 million total; and an $86 million raise for the All of Us precision medicine study, for a total of $376 million.
...
The bill . . . will go next to both the House and Senate for final approval, then Trump for his signature.

Don't you love how much care, empathy. research funding and help old people get when their brain stops working after a life full of joy, learning and accomplishments while young people who have to drop out of highschool and are never again able to read or study after they have just begun to dream what they would like to do and accomplish get the middle finger?
