    Corzine urged to propose revote on stem cell issue


    Although we are in a dreadful financial crisis, there is still light at the end of the tunnel. Help could be right around the corner, here in New Brunswick, New Jersey. This is the location where the State of New Jersey is working on building a stem cell institute that has promising benefits. The stem cell institute of New Jersey is proposed to generate $2.2 billion in revenue, creating 30,000 jobs, and bring in $15 million for in-state revenues. The institute will help provide economic aid to the state of New Jersey in this tie of struggle. However, with all of these great benefits, it is astonishing to learn that the institute is not being built at all! In November 2007, the Stem Cell Research Bond Act was rejected by New Jersey voters, which Gov. Jon Corzine highly supported and campaigned for. For that reason, there is no new building being constructed in New Brunswick.

    Thanks for posting this.

    The message is an important one.

    A very strong argument can be made that investments into research is more productive and provide greater returns than just giving people money to buy consumer goods. The stem cell research bond requested $450 million or about $40 million per year over ten years. The direct return on that investment would have been over $2.2 billion. The indirect return would be much greater. For example, if New Jersey were to become a leader in the stem cell industry as it now leads the pharmaceutical industry, this would means many additional billions of dollars to the state economy.

    Imagine if some of the $7 trillion that taxpayers are paying to refurbish the broken credit industry were spent on curing diseases...

    Good point Dr. Young, I don't understand why people are afraid of stem cells, when it can save so many lives, and politicians are carrying only about votes. I guess you don't have to be a du mm person to do stupid thinks, All those intelligent persons are in charge they do so much damage to our country and we all are paying dearly.

    happy holidays to you and your family, manouli.
