Speaking in Boston earlier this month, President Biden insisted that the United States can “end cancer as we know it and even cure cancers once and for all.”
His “Cancer Moonshot” aims to do just that. Among its many lofty goals, it seeks to halve cancer deaths in the next 25 years.
But if the president wants to cure cancer, he and his Democratic allies have an odd way of showing it. In the last few weeks alone, progressives have advanced several policies that directly undermine the development of new cures and treatments for cancer and countless other deadly diseases.
