News: Bono Applauds Bush's Call For AIDS Spending

Posted on Monday, February 17 @ 12:29:47 CET by Macphisto

(Launch.com) -- Bono of U2 is applauding President George W. Bush's call to increase federal spending to combat the global AIDS crisis. During his State Of The Union address last Tuesday (January 28), Bush asked Congress to increase spending on the cause from $5 to $15 billion over the next seven years.

Speaking on behalf of DATA, an organization that helps raise funds to fight AIDS, Bono said, "If we can turn the president's bold long-term vision into near-term results, we're excited." The singer added, "Any delay in increased funding means more lives lost and an even bigger check in the future." There are roughly 30 million people on the African continent alone who are afflicted with AIDS.
