GOP stripped flu pandemic preparedness from stimulus

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" - George Santaya

Perhaps the GOP should have taken a page out of Mr. Santaya's book. In his response to Obama's address to Congress, Bobby Jindal ridiculed funding for volcano monitoring; less than a month later, Alaska's Mount Redoubt erupted 6 times. Then Maine's Senator Susan Collins came out against flu pandemic preparedness funding... and now we're all going to die from swine flu. Way to go Sue. GOP FTW!
