Swine Flu Update

From Ritholtz:

The WSJ reports today that 1 in 6 Americans were exposed to H1N1, and of those “47 million Americans who were sickened with swine flu from April to mid-November, 9,820 of them died.”

Umnnnhhhh...yah. And as we all know, the flu typically is fatal ONLY if there are 'other underlying conditions.'

The cynic would suggest that Obama's Administration played the CRISIS CRISIS CRISIS card for two reasons: 1) because a crisis is a good thing to Rahmsputin; and 2) because there was a payoff for the pharmaceuticals here.

But that's just what a cynic might think.

"According to Health officials there is a major increase in the vaccination production."
