Bono Joins House and Senate Democrats in the Capitol


U2 lead singer and DATA co-founder Bono joins House and Senate Democrats in the Capitol on Tuesday (Oct. 18, 2005) to urge Congress to appropriate $3.6 billion to fully fund America's commitments to global AIDS for FY06, including $600 million for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria. Bono linked waging a war on poverty and AIDS in Africa to improving global stability, which is in America's national security interest.
