No one blamed Obama during the 2009 swine flu pandemic that killed over 12k

Remember back in 2009 when the swine flu killed over 12k Americans? As of mid-March 2010, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that about 59 million Americans contracted the H1N1 virus, 265,000 were hospitalized as a result, and 12,000 died.
CDC says H1N1 infected 61 million Americans during the pandemic and killed around 12,000. H1N1 is now part of the annual seasonal flu mix.
The 2009 flu pandemic in the United States was a novel strain of the Influenza A/H1N1 virus, commonly referred to as “swine flu“, that began in the spring of 2009. The virus had spread to the US from an outbreak in Mexico.
The swine flu originated in Mexico and was first reported in California. Perhaps this flu infected the U.S.A from illegal immigrants on the California border?
When this pandemic struck the U.S.A, republicans didn’t play politics. The democrats must stop playing politics and begin working with the Trump administration from turning into another pandemic like in 2009 that the Democrats failed to stop.

In times of crisis, there is no parties. Our leaders need to work together to find a solution and keep the people they are representing safe from harm. The democratic party should take a note from the Republicans of 2009 and realize the well being of said citizens comes first. In the end we are all Americans and all lives matter.
