Bush administration spent over 400 billion dollars on embryonic stem cell research


According to the story, of that figure, Obama spent $131 million.  That means most of this spending, which the media wildly cheer, was spent by the hated Bush.  Yet, I don’t remember, when W was POTUS, the media telling us just much Bush’s NIH was pouring into ESCR.  Indeed, during the Bush years some $2 billion was spent from all sources in the USA on human ESCR. That figure wasn’t reported widely either, since it didn’t fit the “bad Bush” story line.
