Three women who took their clothes off in Congress to protest potential cuts in HIV programs were arrested. They said they wanted to highlight the "naked truth" and linked arms with four men who also stripped down as part of the protest. The women had the words "AIDS cuts kill" painted on their bodies. The protest coincides with efforts to strike a deal between Congress and the President to avert automatic spending cuts and tax increases in January in what's called the fiscal cliff. The group arrested is part of a coalition gathering in Washington for Saturday's World AIDS Day.
