Flu vaccine violence

WHYL radio in Carlisle, PA has reported a theft of flu vaccines from a medical center in the Harrisburg, PA area. This follows earlier reports of flu vaccine theft in recent days.

Meanwhile, CBS radio reported government threats this morning to crack down on "profiteers" who try to make money on the vaccine by selling shots to unauthorized persons. The media sees no connection between the "profiteering" crackdown and the thefts and black markets.

Today, we are fighting over a dwindling supply of a price controlled flu vaccine. Tomorrow, we will be fighting over dwindling supplies of much more basic medical products.

Welcome to socialized medicine.
