Tick Perry is one politician that isn't afraid to say that he wants to stick it to us.
First, he tried to mandate the highly toxic gardasil vaccine for girls in Texas. Now, he is back talking vaccines for the entire country in the event of a bio-terror threat.
Martin Hill reports:
After not-so-subtly hinting that he would like to be president in 2016, Texas Governor Rick Perry has warned that "Large doses of vaccines" may be needed to respond to a bio-terror attack on the United States.
During Remarks at the Texas A&M Commencement Convocation last Thursday, Perry said "The allure of Texas A&M is not confined to our culture. This special place offers an excellent academic experience, and is one of the premiere research institutions in the country. Today Texas A&M is the largest research institution in the State of Texas. Our engineers, working with our scientists created the cutting edge National Center for Therapeutics Manufacturing, a first of its kind method for the production of life-saving drug therapies. That vision led to a major federal grant of $176 million to create the Center for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing. It will be capable of creating large doses of vaccines to respond to deadly viruses or a bio-terror attack on our nation."
