It's like Ronald Reagan said: Government isn't the solution to public health emergencies, government is the public health emergency.
American health officials on Sunday declared a public health emergency over increasing cases of swine flu, saying that they had confirmed 20 cases of the disease in the United States and expected to see more as investigators fan out to track down the path of the outbreak.Seriously, who do you trust more to manage an epidemic - Barack Hussein Obama and Janet "Reno" Napolitano, or America's Patriotic, Civic-Minded Pharmaceutical Companies?
Although officials said most of the cases have been mild and urged Americans not to panic, the emergency declaration frees government resources to be used toward diagnosing or preventing additional cases, and releases money for more antiviral drugs.
The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'
