Any version of the Combatting Autism Act that is passed in the next couple of weeks will need to have money appropriated to it in the next Congress. A bill may get passed in the next few weeks, that doesn't mean Congress will need to spend money on it.

So why should we compromise to please Joe Barton and other members of Congress who will either have no power in a couple of weeks, or, like Santorum, will be looking for a new job?

What makes the advocates of the CAA think the Democrats are going to be in any way inclined to fund this bill as it stands now, especially given the tepid support for it in the autism community?
