Entry Title Date
Remembering The Rwandan Genocide April 8, 2014
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"More than just killing, the Rwandan genocide left hundreds of thousands of people infected with HIV as a result of another implement of war that those who perpetrate genocide have used, rape, a crime not of sexual desire, but of violence, of injury, of hate."
Recognizing The Leadership Of Dr. Terri H. Finkel March 24, 2014
Alan Grayson, D-FL
"A strong advocate of evidence-based medicine, Dr. Finkel’s research has helped to uncover extensive genetic overlap across many pediatric autoimmune diseases. Using cutting-edge genomics, she has successfully unmasked dozens of novel risk factors common to childhood arthritis, lupus, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, immunodeficiency, thyroid disease, and psoriasis. Dr. Finkel has led studies that investigate the origins of immunodeficiency and autoimmunity in individuals with HIV infection and AIDS. Other key interests include expanding caregiver sharing of electronic medical records and exploring faster ways to deliver new therapies to patients."
Pepfar December 20, 2013
Tom Coburn, R-OK
"The original PEPFAR authorization in 2003, P.L. 108-25, first included a treatment spending floor that said, “Not less than 55 percent of the amounts appropriated pursuant to the authorization of appropriations … shall be expended for therapeutic medical care of individuals infected with HIV, of which such amount at least 75 percent should be expended for the purchase and distribution of antiretroviral pharmaceuticals and at least 25 percent should be for related care.”"
Nomination Of Melvin L. Watt To Be Director Of The Federal Housing Finance Agency—Continued December 10, 2013
John Barrasso, R-WY
"It is interesting; even today in the Washington Post, the front page above the fold said: “Under health law, insurers limiting drug coverage.” Costs may soar. It talks about many different ailments, including for those with HIV. That is a result of the health care law. If this health care law would not have passed, forced down the throats of the American people with the President telling one falsehood after another, deliberately designed to mislead the American people, you would never have seen a headline like this today."
In Honor Of Rachel Wheeler-Rossow December 3, 2013
Joe Courtney, D-CT
"Rachel’s work earned her recognition from former President Ronald Reagan at the White House in 1983. In 1990, she was awarded the Outstanding Humanitarian Service Award from Connecticut’s Department of Children and Youth Services for her work on child welfare programs for children with HIV. The following year she also was honored with one of only 11 National Caring Awards from the Caring Institute, a Washington, DC based non-profit committed to promoting the values of integrity and public service."
