Still doesn't explain why the CDC didn't step up and oppose the budget cut or try to explain the program to the committee.

Are you sure that they didn't? They asked for the money - so I assumed that they wanted it. From what I've heard - although it is second hand - once it gets into the budget process the CDC is unable to weigh in...Clearly there's alot I don't know about this.
