Yes, you read that title right…he will veto the elimination of mercury in vaccines… this guy gets better every day! From Organic Consumers Association:
“Despite a 2004 campaign promise to the contrary, President Bush continues to allow the mercury-containing vaccine preservative thimerosal to be added to childhood flu vaccines….still, President Bush plans to veto the HHS-Labor-Education Appropriations Bill, which includes a measure to ban childhood flu vaccines that contain thimerosal, because of the cost and “objectionable provisions.“”
Seriously, how can we have a president so conscious about corporate interests that he puts their financial concerns ahead of keeping mercury out of infant vaccines? Wake me up in 2009.
