Another shutdown casualty Medical Research.

I think a lot of people forget how much medical research is funded by NSF and NIH. They also do not realize how many people those grants employ, either outright or partially. My husbands lab alone employs 5 and helps employ 10 more in his department. Not to mention the tuition assistance it gives graduate students.

Shutting down the government to these nuts is not giving welfare checks to these invisible welfare queens, who wear expensive clothes and drive fast cars. In fact it affects lots of people they never thought of.
