    Bush on bird flu

    I dont get it where are the rest of the money?
    1.2+1+2.8+0.58=5.58 where are the rest of 7.1 billion going to?? bush's big ranger hat?
    I am telling you since bush took over the house, I am starting to calculate each number they give and it never sums up!

    "Bush outlined a strategy that would cost $7.1 billion including:

    $1.2 billion for the government to buy enough doses of the vaccine against the current strain of bird flu to protect 20 million Americans; the administration wants to have sufficient vaccine for front-line emergency personnel and at-risk populations, including military personnel.
    $1 billion to stockpile more anti-viral drugs that lessen the severity of the flu symptoms.
    $2.8 billion to speed the development of vaccines as new strains emerge, a process that now takes months. The goal is to have the manufacturing capability by 2010 to brew enough vaccine for every American within six months� of a pandemic�s start.
    $583 million for states and local governments to prepare emergency plans to respond to an outbreak."
