The progressive Agenda Project Action Fund once featured then-vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan throwing an old woman in a wheelchair off a cliff. The latest video, “Republican Cuts Kill,” is just as despicable.
The video, as explained at the 501(c)(4) group’s YouTube channel, features “disturbing footage of the Ebola outbreak—including images of body bags, hazmat suits, and corpses,” is combined with “clips of Mitch McConnell, Pat Roberts, Rand Paul, and Republicans in some of the most competitive races around the country demanding more spending cuts.”
The aim of the video is clearly to illustrate that federal government, who spent over $2 billion dollars for the Healthcare.gov website and a study to research fat lesbians, is being deprived of funding that would keep people from dying on the streets in Africa.

It is – or should be – common knowledge that radical organizations such as the Agenda Project Action Fund are not only influencing Democrats in the federal government, they essentially write the narrative. They also write policy and even legislation, but that is a different article. The bottom line is that groups such as the Agenda Project Action Fund have undue influence on the federal government.
Not-so-coincidentally, the head of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Francis Collins, claimed on Sunday that a vaccine for the Ebola virus “likely would have already been discovered were it not for budget cuts.”
Frankly, if we had not gone through our 10-year slide in research support, we probably would have had a vaccine in time for this that would’ve gone through clinical trials and would have been ready.
As observed at the Brenner Brief, the NIH has “given grant money for a study to determine if pornography viewing equates to support for abortion, a study to research whether ‘bareback’ pornography consumption impacts safe-sex intentions of gay men, [and] a study to research sexual hook-ups in college women, just to name a few.”
Evidently, those studies and a gazillion others like it, were all determined to be more important to finding an Ebola vaccine.
