Proposition 71 perpetrated one of the great corporate welfare scams of recent times. As a consequence, California, which is so broke its emergency rooms are closing and its senior citizen services are being cut, is going to BORROW $3 billion over ten years (not including interest) to pay fat cat biotech companies and university research centers to conduct experiments in human cloning. The bill has barely taken effect and the pork is already oinking, as this S.F. Chronicle article reports. (Too bad the media didn’t do such vigorous journalism before the bill passed.)
