    The discussion revolves around "outputs" (X number of women screened would be an output) and "outcomes", meaning a substantive longer term goal was reached. It's the difference between how many homeless people got a hot meal vs how many got established in permanent independent living. Lots of funders are going in that direction. It would be reasonable for Komen to say we are going to start putting more eggs in the reasearch for a cure basket vs direct preventive care. In such a case, funding would gradually reduce for a large and diverse number of providers. However, ham handedly they did not present such an explanation from the beginning, they've only fallen back on it after other lame excuses didn't work. Probably because they are not substantially reducing funding for a large and diverse group of other providers at this point.

    from a bright young conservative: “I’m watching my first GOP debate…and WE SOUND LIKE CRAZY PEOPLE!!!!”
