Wouldn't have been any different with Whitman and is probably not a big deal.

It would have been different with Whitman...that would be small change she didn't need. However, it must be the same company that paid Perry for his signing of HPV also.

No surprise that yet another greedy politician receives a "kickback" from a pharmaceutical company. Where is the public outcry that a 12 year old child, a sexually active 12 year old child, can receive this vaccine without parental knowledge or approval!!!

Come on people, we are supposed to protect our children!
