NOT going to turn this into a political issue-but even with direct donations, there's a debate about how much the researchers actually get-and how much goes to management overhead-so out of the 12 bucks that goes to the ACS-how much of those dollars actually get to the research itself? (That not meant as a question to answer-more rethorical)
It would be very sad if out of 100 dollar football, the research only gets 1 percent of the entire cost-but that's another subject entirely.
