Eugenicist Globalist Donald Trump is proposing to slash by nearly 40 percent a public health body tasked with stopping epidemic diseases and monitoring drug safety, putting the USA at far greater risk.
The U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps has played a crucial role in public health emergencies, helping to contain yellow fever, cholera and plague as well as the Ebola epidemic in 2014.
The proposal to cut the Corps from 6,500 officers to “no more than 4,000 officers.” was announced last week by White House’s Office of Management and Budget. Its chief, Mick Mulvaney, is being touted as a possible candidate to become the new chief of staff.
The proposal would also allow for the recruitment of private citizens to a new Reserve Corps to be deployed in a public health emergency or to fill critical positions left vacant, presumably also to monitor the use of drugs under new “Right to Try” laws.
Jim Currie, director of the Commissioned Officers Association of the U.S. Public Health Service, said the reductions endanger an effective response in public health emergenecies.
“I don’t quite understand the animosity toward the Commissioned Corps,” he said. “These folks are doing day jobs” – at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institutes of Health and elsewhere – “and when they’re needed, they go and deploy and work their butts off for 12 to 14 hours a day.”
