Sebelius vs. Hillary Begets National Emergency

October 26th, 2009

After the mugging of the vaccine producing pharmaceutical industry by Hillary Clinton in 1993 the federal government became the dominant purchaser and price setter for vaccines in the U.S. The result of this was that major pharmaceutical companies simply abandoned the business of vaccine research and production, leaving it largely to overseas producers.

Now even HHS Secretary Sebelius complains that:

Four of the five manufacturers of H1N1 vaccines are foreign companies — a fact that alarmed lawmakers, who expressed concern about the ability of the federal government to secure enough vaccine to prevent the spread of the swine flu virus. Some expressed even greater concern that the lag in vaccine production could mean the H1N1 flu shots will arrive too late to do any good, citing a recent study that predicted that the most cases of swine flu will occur this week…

Sebelius said the U.S. is “at the front of the line” in terms of getting the vaccines as they’re produced but noted the need to expand the country’s manufacturing capacity.

“We are still too dependent in the United States on vaccination production in other countries,” Sebelius said at a hearing on the topic.

Vaccine manufacturers worldwide are “using old technology,” Sebelius explained, stressing the need to convert from egg-based to cell-based vaccine development.

OK, Hillary, stuff that in your bong pipe and smoke it!

So now the sun-god prez declares a national emergency brought on by government incompetence and socialist destruction of private sector enterprise. These same geniuses now want to do the same thing to the entire health care industry in the U.S.

Crisis after crisis. Welcome to Obamacare folks.
