Hare Calls Report That Wall Street Firms Are Receiving H1n1 Flu Vaccine Ahead Of Ordinary Americans "Appalling"


Location: Unknown

Congressman Phil Hare (D-IL) today released the following statement in response to a report by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington that the H1N1 vaccine has been offered to Wall Street firms.

"Last time I checked, Wall Street fat cats were not listed as a priority group for the H1N1 vaccine. The Department of Health and Human Services should investigate this report immediately. On Monday, I visited a health clinic in my district that is 10,000 doses short of the vaccine it needs. There are many others like it across the country. Taken alone, providing the H1N1 vaccine to Wall Street when vulnerable Americans are still waiting is an insult. Combined with the bailouts and bonuses of the last year, it is downright appalling."
