Sure don't need that money...

In a remarkable bit of irony, given that they called it "pork" amidst swine flu, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) led the fight AGAINST funding for flu pandemics in the stimulus bill. "Does it belong in this bill? Should we have $870 million in this bill No, we should not," she argued.

Nice work, Sue.

And Chuck Schumer gets no points either for caving and calling the flu money by its porcine nickname.
