National Public Health Agencies

Have any of you looked at the org chart for the United States Department of Health and Human Services?

How many of these national-level agencies have a “contagious, communicable, infectious, viral” office involved in this thing?

Do we really need dozens of chefs in the soup?

Maybe this is a big part of the problem.

We do not. But it’s about to get worse. Much, much worse.

That’s lot of power at their fingertips.

It’s an organizational nightmare. And we’re paying for it.

Yes…but keep in mind it was what “some” conservatives wanted…to consulate all those agencies to prevent waste.

Which I agree…but at same time they also consulate all that power.

No lib discussion of this bloated behemoth?

If the problem is bloated government, then yes.
If the problem is a pandemic, then no.

You don’t think the bloat contributes to the inefficiencies?


It certainly does. If anything it’s them regulating themselves to point of being inefficient.

Bloat contributes to inefficiencies.

But I think that government takes too much blame and too much credit for the state of things. (Whether that state be the economy or the pandemic)

If one is looking to blame some human agency for the pandemic, blame the Wright brothers.

I don’t blame the government for the virus. The government did everything it could to respond months ago.

It could get the freakin’ vaccine approved.
