Shouldn't Obama at least be honest about Stem Cell Research?
Direct tax payer funding of stem cell research was banned in the 1995 Dickey Amendment. But continued through loopholes until 2001.
However, Bush DID authorize and financially support the development of alternative, non-controversial human pluripotent stem cell research.
Why is Obama taking credit for simply rewording Bush's executive order 13435?
His "new" bill simply throws money at a science that has already moved past the need for actual embryonic cells thanks to developments under Bush.
