During the debate over the stimulus bill, yeah that one! Democrats wanted to include $900-million dollars for "pandemic" preparedness. That great humanitarian and renowned public health expert, Karl Rove, encouraged Republican senators to kill the proposal. And they did!
Susan Collins (R-Maine), an equally renowned nitwit, back in February boasted of her role in killing the proposal while belittling those who put it forth.
