UPDATE – Chuck Wooldery blasts Democrats’ phony Ebola claims:
The lies are getting pretty desperate.
Aside from the fact that the CDC has been blowing millions on non-disease related nonsense such as:
$3.2 Million to see if monkeys drink too much.
$835,000 on software that could make a flight simulator feel like it was being flown by a drunk.
$295,000 too see if male fruit flies find younger or older females more attractive.
$155,000 to study if drinking while gambling causes you to lose more money.
$1.0 Million to study the impact of stress on monkeys who are addicted to cocaine.
Their ad blames the “sequestration cuts” on Republicans when in fact the so called sequestration budget deal was Obama’s idea and he signed it into law.
It gets better. The “sequestration cuts” were not cuts at all, they were merely a reduction on the proposed increase in spending. The facts are that the CDC budget has gone up year after year after year just like most everything else in government has.
It gets better. Guess who submitted a budget to genuinely cut the CDC? From the Center for Infectious Disease and Research Policy website:
(April 10, 2013) “The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) takes a hit of about $270 million in the Obama administration’s proposed fiscal year 2014 budget, including significant cuts to biodefense and emergency preparedness programs, officials revealed today. CDC Director Tom Frieden, MD, speaking at a Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) press conference, said the “overall program budget would come down by about $270 million” under the budget proposal, compared with spending in fiscal year 2012.”
That was President Obama’s budget proposal.
It gets better.
