"Elton John Defends HIV/AIDS Funding In Florida"
Elton John, who founded the Elton John AIDS Foundation, is urging Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) to protect a program that provides medication to low-income HIV/AIDS patients. A proposed change would lower the income eligibility for the program and potentially make it unavailable for as many as 1,600 people. Several other states are considering or have already made cuts to their support in fighting HIV/AIDS.
