Actually, they are wanting to bypass the CDC completely.
The excuse they will use is that the CDC is not doing an effective job.
Well, it’s not as effective as it could be simply because they
haven’t updated their very old systems, so there’s a kernel of truth there.
It’s an old GOP trick: defund and generally screw up the system
from within and then get rid of it because it isn’t effective or doesn’t work at all.
That’s part of the reason you’re seeing the dismantling of various governmental areas with these people.

So in fact worse than I thought, rostasi. As the US heads into a health crisis that no-one can see the limits of, the chance of getting clear info and guidance has just disappeared. It's like putting on a blindfold as you head out on to the freeway...

Well done!

At least the WHO has international backing and is not beholden to the Trump Admin for its survival. It's the CDC which is vulnerable right now.

America has a responsibility to fund the WHO no strings attached.

But I hear you. Pretty sure we’re on the same page.

You may have heard of the Blue Mustang, the infamous giant blue equine sculpture outside Denver International Airport. But the Blue Mustang is only one of many conspiracy theories circling the DIA’s artwork. When Leo Tanguma painted a series of murals for the Denver International Airport, he had no idea that they would become a lightning rod for conspiracy theories and controversy over the murals’ perceived meaning; despite his attempts to explain the true meaning behind the murals, the firestorm of negative conjecture continues to roll on.
Poor guy loses potential work because of conspiracy nutjobs.
