The CDC under "Dr. Thomas Frieden, the controversial former New York City Health Commissioner who made your lifestyle choices his business." Has now been given a multi-million dollar budget to push his personal agenda which has never been approved by Congress.
"Federal law forbids any funds to be used for "lobbying," yet hundreds of millions of dollars are currently being sent to grant recipients to advance a wide-range of specifically enumerated policy changes that CDC would like implemented in communities. When making the payments, CDC requires grant recipients to agree not to use the funds for "lobbying." The feds wink and the locals nod."
This is a problem that happens in Washington, D.C. all the time it is called POWER and most people abuse it under "we have to save the people from themselves." The people need to be saved from the government not the other way around.
