The Public Health Service Act (PHSA), 42 U.S.C. §§ 201 et seq. (1994). The Secretary of Health and Human Services is authorized to develop and take necessary actions to implement a plan to control epidemics of any disease or condition and to meet other health emergencies and problems, (42 U.S.C. § 243). During an emergency proclaimed by the President, the President has broad authority to direct the services of the Public Health Service, (42 U.S.C. § 217). Under that section, the President is authorized to “utilize the [Public Health] Service to the extent and in such manner as shall in his judgment promote the public interest.”

Who is president?
Who is in charge?

Yet blaming Bush or republicans for anything bad.
The cuts started when Bush was in office so yes he gets blamed as well.
Please,,,, Who's Been In Charge of The United States of America for the last 6 years,,, Bugs Bunny!
