George W. Bush
Jun 17, 2007

Why is everybody, including yourself, hating on our president. As far as HIV treatment goes, we probably have the best availability to new and best drugs, best health care anywhere in the world and we're still being prisy and demanding. If an African country had as much access to HIV meds as we do, they would be hailing George W. Bush as a GOD, if for example he was there presidet. Dr> Bob,stop hating Republicans and our presient, we have it prety good here, no?

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

"Dr. Bob, stop hating our Republicans and our 'presient," we have it "prety" good here, no?" Hmmm . . . presient??? prety??? Well, that speaks volumes on how you could still think Dubya is anything but a bungling nincompoop. And just to set the record straight:

1. We have the most costly health care system in the world. Unfortunately, despite the price tag, it is far from the best. Plus, there are 45 million Americans living without any health insurance here. Five million Americans lost their health insurance under Dubya's rule.

2. Despite billions of dollars being wasted in Iraq, the number of HIV-positive Americans who have no access to life-sustaining antiretroviral drugs continues to grow. Nearly 600 HIVers in Alaska, Montana, Puerto Rico and South Carolina are on waiting lists for ADAP (AIDS Drug Assistance Program). For the richest country in the world to treat its citizens this way is shocking, immoral and completely indefensible.

3. I strongly doubt you'd find an African country (or any country, for that matter) willing to take George Junior. He's a walking disaster area, ruining everything he touches. Hail that rodeo clown as God? I think not!!!

Dr. Bob
