Government Slow on the Take

I’ve always been a capitalist namely because of government inefficiency. But this is even worse then I can imagine. New Hampshire officials are “surprised” to see the rapid rise of Lyme disease.

State public health officials say they are surprised at how many ticks in New Hampshire are infected with Lyme disease.

The state already knew that cases of the disease were increasing, but Health and Human Services Commissioner Nicholas Toumpas said they were surprised to learn that more than half of the ticks sampled in Rockingham, Strafford and Hillsborough Counties tested positive.

What, have they been asleep for the last 10 years? Maybe when the government wakes up and smells the coffee, we will start to get better care for Lyme patients.

Until then, my strategy is as it has always been – if they won’t take care of us, we have no choice but to take care of ourselves.
