Lies, Sex and the Affordable Care Act, and the Seven Forbidden Words in Health Care

For my readers.  Warning...this post may be offensive to some. It includes language and images that may offend some readers.

CDC gets list of forbidden words: Fetus, transgender, diversity

Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden terms at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget, according to an analyst who took part in the 90-minute briefing. The forbidden terms are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.”
In some instances, the analysts were given alternative phrases. Instead of “science-based” or ­“evidence-based,” the suggested phrase is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,” the person said. In other cases, no replacement words were immediately offered.
However it is no more offensive that our official government is banning certain words from HHS publications. This seems very similar to the past ban on network television of the seven 'famous' do not say words, in the words of George Carlin which first appeared in "Class Clown" his famous album, published in 1972.

These expletives can truly be assigned to our medical system.
