Relax, it's an emergency
I am declaring a national emergency over the H1N1 virus. It's an emergency, so I'm signing it now.
But, I'm going to wait until the next day to announce it. I mean, what's the hurry?
We must take whatever steps we can to make sure that we have flu shots for everyone!
Except for my kids.
The rates of illness continue to rise rapidly within many communities across the nation, and the potential exists for the pandemic to overburden health care resources in some localities.*
There! Thatc ought to help get that health care bill through the Senate. You owe me one, Harry.
