I used to think that you were intelligent.
I'd definitely support brain research ahead of a lot of liberal spending programs that already exist, but it's not a pressing problem and can't be justified as additional spending on top of all the nation-weakening social programs we already fund. Package it with the right kinds of (real) spending cuts and I'll support it.
