Are you concerned about the powers given to the HHS Secretary under the state of emergency?

Why does Sebelius need such powers? How will they be used? What is the intentionality in granting such sweeping and ill-defined powers?

You connect the dots. What picture emerges for you?

  • I'm still trying to figure out the need for a national emergency to begin with. The SF has already swept through our area, our house even. Nobody is dead and the hospital wasn't overflowing.... Some of the local doctors are saying that getting the vaccine is pointless now.

  • I can't believe someone has a problem with granting extra administrative powers to agencies in order to streamline reaction time during a time sensitive thing like the H1N1 outbreak. I guess there's a conspiracy for everything. I wonder how people get through life thinking the absolute worst about people who are trying to help the citizens of this country!

  • "I wonder how people get through life thinking the absolute worst about people who are trying to help the citizens of this country".

    !t is hard to know what to believe.
    CBS did an investigation that found that swine flu cases have been way overestimated by the CDC.

    I think it is better to be aware and thinking than asleep with a blind faith in "the people who are trying to help the citizens of this country", as you so blithely call them.

    Right, just like they "helped" during Katrina.


    Maybe we don-t want that kind of "help".
