Hey Congressional Representative, Can You Spare a Flu Shot?

Many people consider the things which government does for them to be social progress, but they consider the things government does for others as socialism.
Earl Warren (1891 - 1974) U.S. jurist.

The Los Angeles Times reports today that despite a nationwide flu shot shortage members of Congress are able to get shots even they don't fall into a high-risk group. So far, more than 2,000 shots to lawmakers and their staff members have been given out. This is what representing the people has come to - let the elderly stand in line for hours and suffer the indignity of trying to stay healthy. Now, if they needed a profitable drug such as Viagra there would be no line.
