What are the right-wingers’ and free-market think-tanks’ prescriptions (if any) for quelling the current outbreak of swine flu? [✍, ✍]
The flu doesn’t exist, and we have laws to deal with it, and it never would have happened if Ron Paul were president.
I mean, obviously.

Brian D: Hahah. 🙂
And I just came upon some real responses:
Josiah: We must impeach Obama and prepare for the End Times!
Ryan: Whatever the Obama administration is doing, it’s clearly wrong and will make things worse! (I won’t tell you what they should have done, though.)
Heartland Institute: We’re not getting paid to write any talking points yet.

More proposed right-wing solutions:
antisocialist, Darin_the_Big_Fat_Troll, etc.: Nah, nah, nah, swine flu isn’t a serious problem! Just concentrate on fixing the economy! Oh, and tax cuts.
Political Housewyf: This “swine flu” thing is just a vast left-wing conspiracy to impose Socialized Medicine™ and sell Tamiflu! (Don’t know what the proposed solution here is, but it’s probably tax cuts.)

Yet more right-wing solutions to swine flu:
crushliberalism: Close the border between US and Mexico! Unless it’s suggested by a Democrat; then no.
Bunny Ramey: Is swine flu a hoax concocted by Osamabamarama to stop the Tea Parties? Or is it a terrorist attack? (I guess, either way, the solution is to hold more Tea Parties.)

retirednavywill: To quell the swine flu, first of all we need a REVOLOOOSHUN!!! Then we close the Mexican borders. Then we pour money into pandemic preparedness… or not. (After all, whatever our choice is, it’s Obama’s fault.) What next? Probably ponies.

justbkuz: Swine flu deaths in Mexico are caused by Socialized Medicine™. (Ergo, the way to combat swine flu is probably more Tea Parties.)

“Let’s tack on a few more trillions of debt and unsupported obligations for universal health care to make ourselves feel more liberally superior. (Hey, it’s worked *so* well for Great Britain and other countries that have tried it.)”
Oh geez. Free healthcare is amazing. And of course, people rich enough to afford good health insurance in the US would be able eto do the samle thing ipno the UK, while people who can’t afford £40,000 treatments are covered.
