Pandemic or Programmed Genocide (Part 1)
Today, April 30th, 2009, I read in the news that the worldwide pandemic level has been raised to a “Red Level” of concern due to the recent outbreak of the Swine Flu. This means that the United States has now been placed under an acute threat status for the spread of a Swine Flu pandemic outbreak.
To date, there is one reported death confirmed in the state of Texas, and fourteen confirmed cases throughout California and Mexico. Let’s look at what types of provisions our government has allotted to the medical facilities in order to protect our citizens from the pandemonium of a life threatening pandemic outbreak. Three years ago, Congress appropriated billions of dollars to the department of Health and Human Services, “HHS”, for the agency’s pandemic influenza plan after animal outbreaks of the extremely pathogenic avian flu virus were discovered in a dozen countries throughout the world.
Today, even though scientists say the threat of a pandemic is still very real, the nation’s interest in the issue has subsided, and the HHS says it does not have the requested resources to fully implement its strategic plan to combat and prevent a catastrophic pandemic outbreak.
December, 2005, Congress appropriated $3.3 billion in emergency funding to HHS for the first year of their intervention plan and $2.3 billion for the second year of funding in June, 2006. Note, those big plans have, to date, not been realized thus leading to the updated statement from HHS that quote, “The full promise for the progress HHS anticipated cannot be achieved as HHS does not have the requested resources to fully implement the plan it proposed.”
This report added that the fiscal 2008 appropriations bill did not include the $870 million initially requested by the president to support the plan’s next phase.
Why is this occurring? Come back next time to read the facts. There is something that can be done at the local level to resolve this on going problem.
