Republicans - Always Thinking Ahead

This kind of brings a whole new definition to the term "pork spending".

...former White House political czar Karl Rove and key congressional Republicans -- led by Maine Senator Susan Collins -- aggressively attacked the notion that there was a connection between pandemic preparation and economic recovery.


Now, as the World Health Organization says a deadly swine flu outbreak that apparently began in Mexico but has spread to the United States has the potential to develop into a pandemic, Obey's attempt to secure the money seems eerily prescient.

Kind of ironic that this is a pig-flu, isn't it.

More from John Nichols at The Nation.

Here's a clip of Collins stating her opposition.

The Republicans, en masse apparently, have little regard for science and basic preparedness. This is yet another example of reactionary posturing gone completely wrong.
