Pandora had a set-up to send emails to Kathleen Sebelius requesting that the CFSAC recommendations be signed off on by her and then acted upon. Well, I did my duty and signed the letter and put my own spin on the letter to Sebellius. Just today I got a US MAIL letter from DHHS and signed by Wanda Jones (the CFSAC Designated Federal Official) who was involved in the drafting of the recommendations. The letter starts off with, "Thank you for your letter to Secretary Sebelius, which has been forwarded to me for response." Are these people kidding??? Essentially, Sebelius' office shot the letters BACK DOWN to Wanda Jones office to deal with. Did Sebelius even see the recommendations? Did she or her office bother to understand the situation and do anything about it? I doubt it. They just dumped it all back down on poor Wanda Jones to deal with - round robin style. Friggin Federal government wasting more time and money. In the letter Jones states, " Implementation of recommendations for any advisory committee takes time, particularly if significant resources are required. The timing of the CFSAC meetings may result in as much as a year's delay because of fiscal year commitments. We have found that about half of CFSAC's recommendations have been, or soon will be implemented, and we do expect progress on others." Great informative letter on top of this stupid Federal government circle-jerk. She did NOT note which of the recommendations were acted upon or about to be acted upon. And she left out what I believe is the most important recommendation: Getting rid of Friggin William Reeves. So, now Dr. Jones will get yet another email from me asking WHICH recommenddations were acted upon, did Sebilius actually read the recommendations, and what is the status on William Reeves being removed from the CDC/CFS program. Anyone else get this super informative letter from Dr. Wanda K. Jones??? Guess Wanda and I will have to have another chat. She actually called me on the telephone because I kept emailing the CFSAC people.
