The two sides of Capitol Hill appear to be engaging in a bidding war to see who can put more money toward the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases in its version of the economic stimulus bill.
The House included $335 million in its package. But the Senate, not to be outdone, provided $400 million in STD spending in its bill.
Someone please explain to me how STD Prevention belongs in the stimulus bill.

I wish our politicians (ALL POLITICIANS) would get a freakin’ clue and do what’s best for America rather than appeasing to special interest groups.
