Unfortunately I can't read the entire article (my work blocks some stuff) but I don't see how this is big news. The federal governement has paid parents over 2 billion dollars in vaccine damages through the vaccine compensation program since 1986. This is common knowledge. Am I missing something (besides reading the whole thing!) is this reffering to some other federal payouts not through the compensation program?

Yeah that.  

 

The compensation program may be news to some, but it's not a secret.

I can't watch the video in the Fox News article, but this may shed more light:

I hope I can say this, but the guy who wrote the blog above is a complete moron.  First of all, Holland and the others are not anti-vaccine. They are pro-choice, and if anyone thinks the people in this country actually have a SINCERE choice, they are sadly mistaken.  The people's "choices" are becoming few and far between.  (Sounds a bit like we are being policed to me and kept "in control" with little to no human rights.) To limit the choices of Americans who choose not to have procedures done to them which can cause severe injury and even death is beyond me, and these are the people who are looking out for our best interests? Please.

 

This guy also has no sympathy for children with autism and who have been injured by vaccines.  It is disgusting. Does he seriously say children with autistic symptoms doesn't actually mean they are autistic? Does he know ingredients in vaccines contain neurotoxins? Does he see how sick our children are today? Sadly, it sounds like he has no idea what vaccines actually have the potential to do.

 

I have a problem with people bashing others who are actually sticking up for the American people and asking questions and for more data/research.  What is wrong with that? Are we supposed to lie down and take everything that is spooned to us (via scare tactics, etc.),  and just go along with it without raising questions about the safety and concern about serious reactions/autism?  It seems like that's what this blogger wants the people to do, but it ain't gonna happen. This issue is not going away.
