During the G.W. Bush administration, Rick Santorum was one of the few conservative voices championing what would become that President’s signature foreign aid program.

PEPFAR, the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, is here.  As my friend Joe said during Santorum’s Iowa speech, PEPFAR’s successor initiative,  The Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde United States Global Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Reauthorization Act of 2008, is just one of things that could find itself on the perennial chopping block over the next few years.  We need to remind the Obama Administration or any incoming Republican administration to remain committed to the goals of PEPFAR/Lantos-Hyde.
