$259 billion alzheimer’s costs in 1 year. We can’t afford  $2 billion for research? 

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, $259 billion dollars will be spent in 2017 because of Alzheimer’s disease. $175 billion of that will be paid by Medicaid and Medicare. 

I don’t understand the lack of funding for the National Alzheimer’s Plan.
