    An advocacy project that might be worthwhile (if not already underway) is to take a look at the 2015 proposed budget for the HHS/NIH and see what gems might be lurking under the surface. In advocating for funding for ME/CFS it always helps to have some choice examples (i.e. Dr. Klimas' great quote about $16 million being spent on male pattern baldness) to show Congress and the public that ME/CFS continues to get the shaft.

    For an example of some other gems -

    The sad part is that most people will take them at face value, and think that more money is really the cure!

    Low info votes is our demise :(
