I think that Harritto Reid needs to have the money placed in his body where the sun does not shine. The creeps that have HIV just won’t stop spreading it to their friends, no matter what the rest public does. We the taxpayer need to stop getting it in the a$$

Must be election time when buying votes with taxpayers money again. This should be funded ALL THE TIME. Not just around elections.

I have HIV and I am an engineer who works for the largest HIV&Herpes dating site . I have to tell you a secret, you can choose not to believe me. But the truth is that it has more than 1,880,000 members and about 80% members are good looking in my estimation. Unfortunately, STD rates soar worldwide and most people with STDs don't even know that they have them. The government should grant more money for STD education to lower the rates of STD transmission.
