They continue, "The USA has been the leader in cancer research. A full quarter of the 18,000 scientists at the convention were from foreign countries -- 75 countries. That is because of our current leadership. China is not sequestering. They already are taking enough of our trade, science, and technology. Do we want our health research leadership to transfer to China -- or to any other country?"Berg and Weiner called the cuts through sequestration "devastating. Speaker after speaker pointed out that NIH has lost 20% in real dollars after inflation over the past decade and that grant support is at its lowest ever." They quote Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee: "While we retreat, other countries copy our successful past model, to help their economies."
