I don't know how we would do this, and I'm not sure what I can do. But I thought I'd post a couple ideas. First, I think we have a window of opportunity here. We are riding high now. But this news coverage could dry up in less than a year. And the the federal agencies that are motivated to cover their asses are not going to throw their arms open and say "We have sinned, here's all the money you need." So I'm thinking of a couple of things. 1. At the end of the current NIH fiscal year, see how much they have given to CFS per person who suffers with it. Compare this to similarly debilitating illnesses, while making sure not to disparage the other illnesses and their need for help. Then look at how much money NIH had left over in their entire grant budget to see how much they failed to give away. I think we will find that they have given us pennies compared to dollars. I think we will find millions left over that they did not grant. 2. A class action suit against the CDC. My main interest in this is so depositions can be conducted and changes can be made. Problem is, I don't know how to do this. Maybe we can identify one of our organizations that would be good at this. PS: I think I saw someone at the prohealth forum several months ago talking to a lawyer about a class action suit. I don't know what came of it.
