Stem Cell Politics

Stem cell politics is funny is somewhat perverted.

Recently the Senate voted on two bill related to stem cell research. One bill as reported to me says The Senate voted to reverse President Bush's 2001 decision prohibiting government funds from being spent to create new lines of embryonic stem cells. In the same e-mail we see another stem cell bill described: The Senate passed this bill that would increase funding for adult stem cell research.

Both bills passed the Senate. However, only one bill received yes votes from the Wisconsin Senatorial delegation, and guess which one that is? The later bill passed by a larger margin than the first one.
