However, the very same U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has refused to call a hearing about another health crisis—whether or not childhood vaccines cause autism.
In August, 2014, a senior CDC researcher, Dr. William Thompson came forward and sought whistleblower status by claiming that an important 2004 paper from the CDC—which found no correlation with the MMR vaccine and autism–was fraudulent. According to Dr. Thompson, the CDC researchers actually found that the MMR vaccine, when given before 36 months of age (it is presently recommended at 12-15 months and again at five years) was significantly correlated with the development of autism. However, the CDC, in a closed-door meeting, altered the data to hide their findings. Furthermore, the authors of this 2004 paper were told, by their bosses at the CDC, to throw out and not disclose any information that showed a correlation of the MMR vaccine with autism.
I have written to about this travesty many times.

My problems is that there is no “honesty” in Gooferment.
I am more firmly convinced that the Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy.
The politicians and bureaucrats have indemnified Big Pharma by the “vaccine harm fund”. SO there is no way to make them pay for their mistakes.
And, of course, a cover up is usually worse than the crime.
I hope whomever is the new President can “clean house”.
But, I fear, that’s too much to hope for.
I don’t envy the decision any parent has to make. And, the fact that there are no “facts” to guide them makes it even worse. At least, the old tribal witch doctor didn’t have a conflict of interest. Too many bad results and he’d be sacrificed to appease the gods. Maybe we should try that approach?
