How much does Gay Lifestyle cost you?

by James Denison - 2/28/14 2:09 PM

We've already shown in past how the overwhelming number of people with HIV contracted it through sodomy, and a lesser number through shared IV needles. So, how much is the sinful life of the Gays costing Americans?

It is measured in the billions of dollars for an easily preventable disease.

"President Obama's Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 federal budget request,
released on April 10, includes an estimated $29.7 billion for combined
domestic and global HIV/AIDS activities.1 Domestic HIV/AIDS is funded at $23.2 billion and global at $6.5 billion in the request.2
The FY 2014 request represents a 5.5% increase ($1.5 billion) over FY
2013 levels, which totaled $28.2 billion. FY 13 funding was finalized
through a Continuing Resolution (CR) several months ago, but final
funding levels by program, accounting for the effects of sequestration,
were only recently made available.3
Final FY 2013 funding levels reflect cuts due to sequestration, which
mandated an approximate 5% decrease from enacted levels to most
discretionary programs, projects, and activities.4
Some of the increase in discretionary funding in the FY 2014 request
over FY 2013 can be attributed to the effects of sequestration. Detailed
data for FY 2009-FY 2014 are provided in Tables 1-2.
Federal funding for HIV/AIDS has increased significantly over the
course of the epidemic, including by $4.7 billion (or 19%) since FY 2009
(see Figure 1). This growth has been driven primarily by increased
spending on mandatory domestic care and treatment programs, as more
people are living with HIV/AIDS in the United States. "
