The Republican former House speaker has called for a doubling of the agency’s budget, which has hovered around $30 billion for the past five years. “Even as we’ve let financing for basic scientific and medical research stagnate, government spending on health care has grown significantly.

By funding basic medical research, Congress can transform our fiscal health, and our personal health, too.”
