Chris has already explained how Republican House science committee member Adrian Smith is calling on the public to search through government research grants helping to “identify grants that are wasteful or [not] a good use of taxpayer dollars.” I have another suggestion: Let’s place everyday citizens behind surgeons shoulders to advise doctors on where to cut, with the authority to stop the procedure when they disagree. Nonsense right? Smith’s “YOUCUT” is just as ridiculous.
As Alice once said, “It would be so nice if something would make sense for a change.”
