GOP reps condemn anti-vax movement

February 3, 2015

Republicans on a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on Tuesday used a hearing on the flu season to debunk claims that vaccines are not safe for children as fear continues to grow over the country’s measles outbreak.

Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Pa.) asked four of the country’s top infectious disease experts if they believed that parents should have their children vaccinated.

“Definitely,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “To me it’s really a slam dunk what the decision should be.”

    I don’t have a great deal of confidence in the “high-ranking Medical experts”, they have a “pile of money” to lose if they don’t get their share from the Pharm’s!

    1. I Seigel says:

      Then please stay indoors and do not contaminate the rest of us with disease or your ignorance.

      1. James in Texas says:

        Not a problem. Since you chose to make this a personal thing, you have nothing to worry about. I have virtually nothing I would ever consider to share with you, Period!

        1. I Seigel says:

          Sorry, I’ll amend my previous comment. It’s not necessary to stay indoors. Just please stay in Texas.
          There, now I haven’t just insulted you, I’ve probably insulted the entire state. So be it.

          1. James in Texas says:

            The State of Texas can not be “offended” by folks who have never been Blessed to be born here or live here. Enjoy your life wherever you live as “We” Texans enjoy living in the Best state in the Union, Period!

          2. I Seigel says:

            Well said. Thank you.

            So what other advice are you planning on taking from Jenny McCarthy today? Maybe she can teach you astrophysics next.

          4. James in Texas says:

            Who I decide to take advice from or not, is none of your concern! It seems that far too many folks believe that only “they” know anything about everything. You are entitled to your opinion, I am entitled to mine. What I believe and know is not your problem, it appears that you know everything and everybody else should listen to you. Good luck with that kind of an attitude!

          5. Parg0n says:

            You may be entitled to your opinion, but you are not entitled to your own facts.

            If you said that 2 + 2 = 5, and that was just your own opinion, it’d still be wrong.

            And when your own “opinions” lead to other people dying of measles or whopping cough, then it IS my problem.

        2. Dan says:

          Let it go. There are non so blind as those who refuse to see. They can take their chances on the vaccine.

    2. Parg0n says:

      Well, James in Texas, perhaps you’d like to share with us your deep knowledge of immunobiology to tell us why people don’t get polio or smallpox anymore. And what are your qualifications to make that assessment?

      America used to respect people who had skills or expertise. Now anyone who’s heard from Jenny McCarthy is as much an expert as a scientist who’s done decades of research. Yet, you’re throwing in your lot with a supermodel and with clueless housewives in the Bay Area. Let me know how that works out for you.

      1. Dan says:

        The optimum word is used to, the shots we had as children are not the same as today. I am 63, had all my shots never got sick. I don’t recall any one dying from them either. It’s a different ballgame today, it’s about money and population. The Elite wants more money and less population. Good example, the flu shot. They say it doesn’t work because it’s for last years flu, which has mutated into a new strain. Vaccines today kill more than the disease its supposed to cure. I will not take that chance with my children.

        1. Parg0n says:

          So you get to have your shots, but children these days do not. Typical “I got mine, screw the rest of you” mentality we’re seeing from people of your generation.

          Reason? Because you have too much time on your hands listening to AM radio and reading ill-informed blog posts and ex-supermodels instead of scientists WHO ARE ALL CLEARLY PART OF SOME GLOBAL CONSPIRACY!!!!

          1. Dan says:

            Go ahead and get all your shots, and make sure you’re up to date on your flu shot.

      2. Dan says:

        Have you ever heard of the Bilderberg Group, New World Order or The Venetian Black Nobility? Before you condemn someone for their opinion, research the above mentioned subjects, you may change your own opinion.
