Let's be honest for once do we really think for one second that $900 million dollars would prevented the 40 people that the Center for Disease Control have confirmed with Swine Flu. Do we honestly think that the masses are any less safe today because we didn't spend even more money in the Swineous Porkus Bill of 2009? I think not. No amount of money has fixed the ailing banks, suffering economy, stemmed massive job losses and decimated investments of hundreds of millions. Throwing money at a "pandemic preparedness plan" was not going to create jobs. Besides the medical industry is one of the few industries adding jobs.
There have been only 20 cases confirmed Swine Flu in the United States according to the Center of Disease Control and 0 deaths. This means it's NOT a pandemic.
