Bush administration altered CDC climate change testimony

And we pay for this! How many times have you paid for a terrible product, only to ask for, or demand, a refund?

Well, we need to do this with government. They work for us! Damn it!

White House Altered Climate Change Testimony -
Documents obtained by The Washington Post show that White House officials heavily edited testimony on global warming delivered to Congress yesterday by the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, downplaying the specific health problems that could arise.

Bush administration officials cut CDC director Julie L. Gerberding's testimony to the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on "climate change and public health" from 12 pages to six, removing sections that detailed how global warming would affect Americans and suggested that the government has yet to fully respond to the potential risk posed by climate change.
