Looks like Nathan Tabor picked the wrong day to write this:

Democrats attempted to embarrass the President and portray him as being out of touch with the American public by forcing a vote on a federal funding plan for embryonic stem cell research that he had promised to veto. Embryonic stem cell research has resulted in zero successful treatments. That’s why its backers are so determined to get federal funding, because private investors aren’t willing to put their money in it.

What a difference a day makes:

Human embryonic stem cells can help regenerate damaged nerves in rats, producing compounds that nurture nerve cells and stimulate the growth of new ones, Geron Corp. said on Wednesday.


Geron is one of several private companies working with human embryonic stem cells, whose use is controversial. Federal law restricts the use of federal taxpayer money for the research.
