Another crisis that the Obama administration won't be able to "let go to waste".
I can hear the calls for intergalactic health care now.
"If only America had done the right thing. If we had done our share, Then small children and elderly pensioners in Mexico would have received the care they needed, and the world would not be loosing its blood and treasure to this threat to mankind".It will go unreported by the mainstream media that the 1976 swine flu scare resulted in one death, and that the resulting hysteria sparked a government effort to immunize all 220 million citizens. The effort was halted after about 40 million were immunized because roughly 500 cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome and 25 deaths were identified as being the result of immunization. A debacle.
And so another tremendous opportunity to 'do what before could not have been done' will prevail. The US Treasury will be depleted, but drug companies and friends of government will make their fortunes.
That being said, please continue to wash your hands and cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Thank you.
