And said so on the air back in June: The US Government (well, especially the White House) will eagerly use H1N1 Swine Flu fears to help citizens want more government 'help". So today when the President declared a "national emergency" (which will possibly speed up the flu shot process, short term), I couldn't help to think "I said so". Watch how the "emergency" may also be used in convenient timing to try to sway the health care takeover debate... and keep on eye on attempts to grab expanded national powers during the "crisis". For our own good, of course.

STOP IT THEN: One of the Administration's economic czars, Ms. Romer, says the "stimulus" is about done. Another report says we've spent only half. If there's money to be saved, maybe the rest of the cash orgy ought to be stopped... turn off the presses and help cool coming inflation. After all, the plan's not working... except for creation of government jobs.
