Disparity of Care 

So, as the country panics about the lack of flu vaccine, our Congresscritters have a dedicated supply, and are being encouraged to take the shots, even if they are young and healthy. While this should come as no surprise, in that those in power tend not to lack things their subjects may lack, it's pretty flagrant and disgusting. Especially when you consider that the flu vaccine is of limited utility in the first place, even amongst 'high-risk' populations.

Also, how many people are clamoring to get these shots now, who never even thought about getting one before there was this shortage media-frenzy? Probably quite a few.
