Say It Ain’t So! Video Shows Schumer Bragging About Cutting Funding To Flu Epidemic

You won’t see this video on CNN or MSNBC but the internet never forgets, it shows Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer bragging about cutting funding to the flu epidemic.

Not very long ago Democrat leader Chuck Schumer was bragging to reporters that he defunded the flu epidemic that was ravaging the elderly.

The Obama stimulus package funded Obama bundlers for green energy projects and gave money to pro-Obama groups but it cut the funding to handle influenza outbreaks.

Since the first coronavirus case was diagnosed Senator Schumer has lead the attacks to hindered the President’s efforts to help the country get through this crisis.

In 2009 the Obama Administration economic recovery package cut $850 million that funded pandemic preparedness.

The Christian Science Monitor reported on April 27, 2009:

 Sen. Charles Schumer (D) of New York reminded reporters before the Feb. 10 vote that that “all those little porky things that the House put in,” including money for the flu pandemic, were out.

Senator Collins was one of the three Republican swing votes that helped the $779 billion stimulus package narrowly avoid a Senate filibuster.

Monday, she circulated a Dec. 10, 2008, letter showing she supported a $905 million increase in spending on biological terrorist attacks and pandemic preparedness.

“During negotiations of the economic stimulus package, Senator Collins always maintained that, though very worthwhile, pandemic flu research funding should go through the regular appropriations process since it did not meet the test of stimulus spending,” said spokesman Kevin Kelley in a statement.

On Wednesday, the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee will hold a hearing on “Swine Flu: Coordinating the federal response.” The panel is chaired by Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I) of Connecticut; Collins is the ranking Republican.

In the middle of an epidemic, the Democrats cut the funding to handle their pet projects causing people to die and crippling our ability to handle the crisis we are facing now.
