Prevention Fund love (finally!)

At long last, someone is showing a little backbone in trying to protect the Prevention and Public Health Fund.  The fact that it's the Senator from Iowa makes it all the sweeter.  Go Tom!  The money quote from Senator Harkin:
"I am greatly disappointed that the administration chose to help pay for the Affordable Care Act in fiscal year 2013 by raiding the Public Health and Prevention Fund. The Prevention Fund works. Thanks to this funding, more children are being immunized. More people are quitting smoking. More communities are fighting chronic disease. More people are being screened for hepatitis C. Robbing prevention when we know these efforts can improve people's health and lower healthcare costs goes against the very mission of healthcare reform."
h/t to Mike for e-mailing me the link.
