Party of NO and the Flu Pandemic

What does money for a flu pandemic have to do with an economic stimulus package? Probably the same reasoning that put highway funding into the stimulus package. Once again, President Obama was correct. We needed to get the flu pandemic program underway ASAP....and it would have been money well spent providing jobs and creating the health infrastructure to deal with a pandemic.

Who dares to say that we are safer with Republicans in charge? What a silly myth that is promoted by the "corporate controlled" media. The party that ignored the warnings on 911, was a disaster even when they had fair warning (i.e. Katrina when Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, and even the White House Chief of Staff were ALL on vacation) and now the Republican NO's have messed up another potential disaster.

I "betcha" Dick Cheney still has a lot of money invested in Tamiflu.....and the timing of this flu epidemic is taking some heat off of Cheney and the torture issue....while those poor enlisted soldiers who took the fall continue to be behind bars.

Thank heavens we finally have a competent President for a welcome change.

Chuck Schumer is simply the exception that proves the rule....there's always that one or two that is so was the party of no that stripped this out of the bill...just b/c a few backwards Dems went along....bottom took the party of no to strip the pandemic preparations out of the bill.
