How the CDC really spends your tax dollars

(NaturalNews) Recently the research, practices and spending habits of The Center for Disease Control (CDC) have been under harsh scrutiny, and with good reason. Video and story coverage on CBS proves that the CDC is utterly corrupt, spending YOUR tax dollars in ways that will blow your mind.

Watch the video here and see where your money really goes: (http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=61B80CA8D8292D...)

Although the CDC's main mission is supposed to be to prevent disease, a shocking investigation from Congress claims the profiteering agency has been squandering hundreds of millions of your tax dollars on Hollywood scripts, posh fitness clubs and amenities, parties and more.

The CDC uses tax dollars to push propaganda on Hollywood

The candid scrutiny of the CDC budget begins in Hollywood, where the agency reportedly pays a liaison to help TV dramas and soap operas write "accurate medical plots." That's right folks, that means the CDC actually pushes its propaganda onto Hollywood scripts. This service is completely free of charge to Tinseltown tycoons, all thanks to the generosity of $1.7 million of your tax dollars. Talk about a SERIOUS waste of taxpayer dollars!

Outlandish spending first exposed in a Congressional report: "CDC Off-Center"

In 2007 Senator Tom Coburn issued a report, titled CDC Off-Center, which cites an outrageous amount of improper spending on multiple non-disease related expenses. All the while, the agency continues to be unable to explain exactly how they are doing their job of preventing disease.

The CBS special report on Coburn's investigation claims that even back in 2008 the CDC was asking the U.S. Government for an ADDITIONAL billion dollars to add to its $10 billion dollar budget. Clearly it plans to continue finding ways to exploit the hard-earned money of taxpayers -- in ways that have absolutely nothing to do with disease prevention.

Where the agency's funding REALLY goes

What exactly are these non-disease related expenses? How about the CDC's new $109 million headquarters that it has filled to the brim with nearly 10 million bucks in furniture? Apparently the figures work out to be about $12,000 worth PER PERSON in the building.

The agency's beyond-frivolous spending doesn't stop there, however. Let's not neglect to mention the new $106 million communications and visitors center which comes complete with waterfalls, plasma televisions and much more. A $200,000 fitness center boasts $30,000 saunas, "quiet rooms" and "zero gravity chairs" that provide "mood-enhancing light shows" for CDC employees.

The Congressional report mentions that taxpayer dollars that are actually being spent on disease prevention almost always yield "disappointing results."

Disappointing is an extreme understatement. AIDS grants given to the CDC have reportedly been put toward workshops on erotic writing, how to flirt and how to throw an alcohol party.

In fact, the crooked agency supposedly spent $5 billion over the course of seven years on AIDS prevention. But the infection rate didn't drop the slightest bit. And after it spent $269 million worth of YOUR tax dollars on its efforts to eliminate syphilis, syphilis rates WENT UP 68 percent.

CDC Director Julie Louise Gerberding wouldn't agree to an interview, the CBS report claims, "from CDC's new state-of-the-art television studio or anywhere else."

However, the agency issued a statement saying "CDC takes seriously the need to wisely and appropriately use its resources," and that the report gives an incomplete view of its "excellent public health work."

Excellent public health work? That must include lying to the public for years about how dangerous vaccines are. Read more here: http://www.naturalnews.com/033902_CDC_vaccin...

In fact, the CDC vaccine scientist who downplayed links to autism was indicted by DOJ earlier this year in an alleged fraud scheme: http://www.naturalnews.com/032216_Thorsen_fr...

According to the CDC, the new facilities and equipment it has spent millions on "have led to scientific advances and strengthened our ability to respond to public health emergencies."

More like, they have drained the pocketbooks of taxpayers that have no idea where their money is actually going! (As we can see, it's certainly not toward successful disease prevention.)
