President Obama was heckled by AIDS activists Wednesday as he made an appearance at a New York fundraiser for the Democratic Party. The protesters caused enough of stir at a Manhattan hotel ballroom that the president stopped his remarks to address them. "You don't need to yell. Apparently you're interested in funding AIDS," Obama said. "...We have increased AIDS funding at a time when the budget is going down." The president fit the complaints with his campaign message, saying the Republicans would do far worse than he has. "The people who would take over if we don't win this election, I promise you they'll cut AIDS funding," Obama said.
