Decentralizing; decoupling from the deadly CDC and its federal overlords is what it’ll take. States across the country are rediscovering and reasserting the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution:

Watch state officials scramble to deport and quarantine for fear of reprisal from local citizens to whom they are beholden. Privatize healthcare and observe hospitals scramble to put in place the best screening and treatment facilitates, for fear of being put out of business by law suits and by competition.

At $7 billion, the Centers for Disease Control 2014 budget is nearly 200 percent bigger now than it was in 2000. … [some of its] recent crusades: Mandatory motorcycle helmet laws. … Video games and TV violence … Playground equipment … “Social norming” in the schools …
