Okay, so there have been about 65 cases of swine flu in the US so far. None of them has been fatal. But according to this article , Obama would like to allocate $1.5 billion (yes, that’s Billion with a “B”) to fight it.
Excuse me?? I mean, I realize that it is a concern, but the fact is that the regular old garden variety of flu kills around 3000 people every month! (LINK )
Might we just possibly be overreacting?
Is this another attempt, like global warming, to play on people’s fears so as to increase our debt even more?
