Google for lawsuits on everything from aspirin to zinc tablets and you'll find them galore. If you take any Rx medicine you'll doubtless find that being sued about too. Bottom feeders. I don't put a lot of stock in the theory that if lawsuits exist about X, X is a universally bad thing. Still, this vaccine had no business being on anybody's mandatory list. And bless Michelle Bachmann's heart, she's responding like a lot of mothers would. Having a mother as president would be... well, different. Golda Meir didn't do that lousy a job, and neither did Margaret Thatcher.
Bachmann and Palin being women probably react differently that a lot of men. Rick Santorum was a guy who took their stand also.
I think there are some good and solid aspects to Perry, but stuff like this is a problem. Makes me wonder what else is out there.
I am tired of government playing nanny. Bottom line. If someone wants to do that. I reject it. That was one of my problems with Mitch Daniels.
As far as the lawsuits go, I am not a lawyer, it would be interesting to know if a drug is mandated by government, can the drug company be sued for liability? Or is it protected by government?
