    The Facts

    • Biden has announced a revival of the "cancer moonshot" initiative, with the goal of reducing the death rate from cancer by 50% over the next 25 yrs.

    • He'll tap a White House coordinator for the program and assemble several federal departments into a "cancer cabinet."


    The Spin

    Narrative A

    This is ambitious, but Biden has set clear goals and mobilized tremendous resources to ensure its success.

    Narrative B

    This is admirable and full of good ideas, but without additional funding it's likely to fail.
