Suppose that POTUS announces CURE for Cancer?


The cures for all cancers as well as AIDS and many other things are right around the corner through the coming explosion of genetic medicines (actually viral vectors genetically engineered to deliver the cures).

The President is obviously well-briefed on this. At least twice in speeches he has said: "The AIDS epidemic will be completely ended in the United States within 10 years."

The very first genetic cures based on lentivirus vectors have been released commercially in the EU, and will soon be certified by the FDA here.

These initial medicines are targeted at very rare, very serious (or fatal) diseases with well understood genetic structures that can be reliably targeted using the viral vector approach. When people with "Incurable" diseases start going home after a single dose--COMPLETELY CURED--the dam will break on hundreds of other cures that are already queued up for approvals.

This will BTW present a new set of issues for the insurance industry and medicare; however, I think the cures will ultimately be cost effective versus lifetime illnesses punctuated by major medical procedures.

One dose--CURED.

One dose—CURED.
Absolutely—And when POTUS announces the Cure for cancer:

DEMS will hold demonstrations against him holding posters that say”

Curing Cancer is Racist
Trump Kills Health Care Jobs
It’s MY Body, I’ll have Cancer if I want to
Why does Trump hate doctors so much
Resist the CURE

LOL-Well—DDDDDuh—That’s all Folks...

Hey Disest...How come you didn’t post all this knowledge up thread when everyone was talking about Cancer and How no one really wants to cure it—they like the money from treating it?

All I was doing was trying to make a little sarcastic joke about DemonRats and how no matter what success POTUS announces they immediately are for the opposite.

I’m so bummed that you completely ignored my point. Not even a slight snicker. Just call me Dangerfield.
