CDC’s delinquent COVID math comes to center stage

Published in Blog on November 06, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

Tasked with combatting pandemics and safeguarding the population’s health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still can’t seem to do basic addition and subtraction.

The nation's top health agency removed 72,277 deaths, including those of 416 children, from its COVID-19 Data Tracker in March 2022 after the overestimates were attributed to ‘coding logic errors.’

As the misinformation/miscalculations came to light, questions about the federal agency’s data validity were raised. The CDC pushed health policies like masks, vaccines, and school closures for both children and adults, but was the fear-mongering data skewed? 

To this day, the CDC is struggling to keep up with its own math. 

The CDC provided data to the House Energy and Commerce Committee in August 2023 that said 2,292 children died of COVID-19 based on the COVID tracker. However, in a later response, the CDC said 1,696 children died from COVID-19 in a timeframe that was two months longer and based on numbers in the National Vital Statistics System.

In response to the troubling contradiction, the Committee is now investigating the CDC’s data tracking.

“Overcounting child deaths by at least 35 percent is a massive discrepancy in reporting,” the Committee wrote in a recent letter to the CDC, referencing data concerns reported in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) and raised by other analysts. “The overcounting also raises questions about whether CDC used inaccurate data that led to decisions harmful to children.”

The numbers don’t add up, yet our unelected health officials still maintain the authority to control our livelihoods as they please. Americans are still enraged at the government’s blatant power usurpation during the three-year health emergency declaration. 

When those acquiring power are the same people who can’t be held accountable for their erroneous math, something needs to change. It’s time for a reining in, and it starts with empowering the states and the people to take back their rightful authority.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
