Thank you to everyone who contacted Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin.  I’m happy to report that the Tick Act Bill, renamed to the Kay Hagan Tick Act Bill after former U.S. Senator Hagan who recently succumbed to Powassan Virus, passed unanimously through the HELP Committee. It now moves forward to the Senate for a vote.

Politicians are listening due to one thing only – your involvement and effort.

Voice from every U.S. state were heard with over 150 Lyme foundations and organizations along with state the federal organizations.

This is a win for patients.

Excerpt:

Is there a provision within the Tick Act to restrict research funds from the con artists who have characterized Lyme as a simple nuisance disease (Hard to catch and easily treated)?

Patients who fail treatment are kicked to the curb and told they have “Medically Unexplained Symptoms” [3] while ignoring the large body of evidence that we have been dealing all along with an antibiotic resistant/tolerant superbug. [4]

Previous NIH funding for Lyme was under the direction of Edward McSweegan and Philip Baker. Corrective action: The NIH should suspend all funding to researchers with a bias against persistent Borrelia infection particularly those who have been named in the Texas racketeering lawsuit [6] who continue to use taxpayer dollars to fund their ongoing racketeering/propaganda scheme.

There needs to be an immediate shutdown of the “open checkbook” handed to Dr. Gary Wormser by the US Centers for Disease Control (Funding: RO1 CK 000152) with his unethical fixation on the acute stage of disease purposely avoiding the advanced stage which hides the horribly disabled.

Complaint filed with the Office of Research Integrity:

Here is the short list of con artists who were also coauthors of the deplorable Lancet article, Lyme disease antiscience. [7]

Defendants in the RICO lawsuit: (There are many more researchers to be included in this short list)

  1. GARY P. WORMSER
  2. RAYMOND J. DATTWYLER
  3. EUGENE SHAPIRO
  4. JOHN J. HALPERIN
  5. LEONARD SIGAL
  6. ALLEN STEERE
Put an end to the favoritism in research funding for Lyme at the NIH or are we going to experience yet another decade of unimaginable pain and suffering.
