WASHINGTON, D.C. — A group of Americans has been told that they have 19.7 weeks to get a mammogram or risk losing $5.6 million in federal funding. Federal officials say this is not a joke, and they’re trying to enforce the guidelines that they set out, but it’s entirely possible that millions of people will ignore the government’s call to action and not do a mammogram to check for breast cancer. The people who are annoyed by this seem to have different reasons.
