If the CDC hadn’t focused for years on “gun control” and “social justice,” it would have been better prepared for coronavirus PANDEMIC

The major problem with continually growing the size of the federal government is that eventually, it becomes so large it begins to do things it was never intended to do.

At the same time, the various agencies tasked with certain functions begin to operate outside of their mandates and/or purposes at the time of creation. One such agency is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Mind you, the formation of an agency specifically designed to help the country prepare for and guard against major health emergencies was a necessary and resourceful use of tax dollars. Advanced nations tend not to survive for the long haul if the cannot detect and prevent things that threaten their survival.

The CDC was initially founded for that purpose — to monitor, detect, and prevent pandemics while assisting in the research of potential viral and bacterial threats as well as responding to them when they struck.

But over the years, the agency branched into other areas of ‘research’ that were wholly inappropriate for, and unrelated to, its core mission.

As reported by Big League Politics, the CDC is once again coming under scrutiny over its initial responses to the outbreak of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). But “examining what they devote their limited resources toward shows that the anger that has developed toward the bureaucracy is well-deserved.”

The site further reports:

Journalist Daniel Greenfield noted in FrontPage Mag that the CDC has focused on liberal causes du jour rather than their mandate of actually keeping Americans safe from legitimate public health crises.

Greenfield noted that one of the social justice causes that have been pushed by the CDC are unconstitutional gun control schemes.

Greenfield, in noting that the CDC has a $6.6 b billion budget, “messes up” the one job it has “every time.”
