@Medfeb Thanks. It appears I misunderstood the following sentence: "Our plan calls for significantly ramping up research funding to equal the disease burden, which studies approximate at $190 to $250 million." My interpretation was that the disease burden is $190 to $250 million -- not the request for ramped up funding. Am I the only one who might interpret the message incorrectly, and if not, should the letter be reworded? For example: "Our plan calls for significantly ramping up research funding to between $190 and $250 million to better equal the disease burden."
