US Congressman Accuses CDC of Lies Regarding Vaccine SafetyUpdated: January 25, 2018 Activism, Vaccination
At long last, it’s finally happening!
The US Congress is waking up to the criminal, yes criminal, behavior on the part of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and demanding transparency and accountability.
Congressman Bill Posey of Florida (Space Coast), in a courageous act that could threaten his political career, called out the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on charges of corruption in the area of vaccine safety.
In a recent radio interview, Congressman Posey accuses the CDC of deliberately covering up a link between vaccines and autism:
“…incestuous relationship between the public health community and the vaccine makers and public officials… as long as Thorsen [a scientist with connections to the pharmaceutical industry] was cooking the books to produce the results they [CDC] wanted, they didn’t care whether the studies were valid or how much money was being siphoned off the top.”
Posey said that Dr. Colleen Boyle, head of the National Center for Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities at the CDC, is quite the master of spin.
When Congressman Bill Posey asked Dr. Boyle directly if the CDC had done a simple and obvious study comparing rates of autism between children who had been vaccinated vs. children who had not, Dr. Boyle did not answer the question even though a simple “yes” or “no” was required. According to Posey:
“Dr. Boyle was intentionally evasive. I asked her a, you know, very direct question, ‘Have you done a study comparing autism rates and vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children?’ She started telling us about everything that she had done in order to avoid answering that question. I mean, it’s like I asked her what time it was and she tried to take up all my time describing how a clock works, you know. And after she wasted three minutes, I cut her off. And I demanded that she answer the question. And then, only then, did she admit that the federal government had not done that very simple, fundamental, basic, study. You can do that retroactively, as you know and most of the people listening know, every vaccine study the CDC does is retroactive and they parade them around as being valid, so, it’s shocking to know that for some reason suddenly they say if they do a retroactive study, that it’s looking at past data that already exist. They say that that study would not be valid. And that is just outrageous, to say the very least.”
In response to CDC lack of transparency on the subject of vaccine safety and its refusal to study the obvious: the health of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children, Congressman Bill Posey (FL) and Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (NY) have introduced House Resolution 1757, The Vaccine Safety Study Act.
If passed, HR 1757 would require the following:
To direct the Secretary of Health and Human Services to conduct or support a comprehensive study comparing total health outcomes, including risk of autism, in vaccinated populations in the United States with such outcomes in unvaccinated populations in the United States, and for other purposes.

No matter whether you support vaccines or not, we all want safe vaccines and a formal clinical study that answers the question that screams “YES” from anecdotal observation and large correlative surveys: are unvaccinated children healthier than vaccinated and do they suffer from autoimmune diseases like autism at reduced rates?
