What a ridiculous waste. $8.3B is about $25 for every man woman and child in America. Just give me the cash and I'll take care of my own preparedness. Listen - if its in the news - it is a sure bet NOT to happen. Why? Because if it was common it wouldn't be news. Remember the Measles Epidemic last year? What?...maybe a 100 cases? Last year the Ukraine had about 40,000 case of measles. QUIT CATASTROPHIZING the news! Stop reacting like a bunch of puppets on strings of crisis.
