It’s scarce right now. You aren’t going to find much.
Your Texas 2007 Republican-dominated state legislature.
“Earlier this week, the Harris County Hospital District reported enough medication to treat just 300 adults and 100 children. Stocks were limited this week at Walgreens and CVS stores in
, but representatives for both retailers said the companies were sending more to Texas .” Houston
“State reserves could have been larger. In 2007, the Texas Department of Health Services requested $34 million from the Legislature for antivirals to deal with a flu pandemic but received $10 million to purchase less than one-third of what was available to the state under a federal government discount program.”
So now we have politicians deciding what medications will be available to the public, huh? Why is it, I am always asking myself, that we have people making critical decisions for hundreds, thousands or millions of people, who are functionally unequipped to render proper judgment?
Just keep that in mind when you start seeing and hearing TV and radio ads produced by Republicans and the health industry lobby about how the communist Democrats want to pass health care reform legislation that will allow the government to interfere with your medical care.
That’s already happening, only it’s the people pointing the fingers who are doing it.
