    I wouldn't exactly call West Africa at this point a "hot zone". You're exaggerating just how communicable Ebola is...

    Look who's talking. A disease breaks out in Africa, and the Right goes immediately into anti-science, xenophobia mode.

    I know that actually spending money on equipment and training to fight a disease is alien to the superstitious minds of conservatives, but you're going to have to get used to it. Tax cuts for the rich won't cure ebola, just like they didn't cure the Bush recession. Conservative delusion time is over.

    A "healthcare issue"?? Are you kidding? Birth control is a healthcare issue... Ebola is a plague that kills 70% of those who contract it, by means of violent internal hemorrhaging. Liberals are not sane people.

    I specially said "third world" twice in reference to who I was talking about. Einstein was not from the third world, Von Braun was from nobility, and Tesla wasn't what you'd consider third world either. Now Obama, he does have third world roots, and look how wonderful that's turning out to be.

    Hyperventillate much?

    I think responding to a disease can reasonable be called a health care issue. It requires money. I hope you're for raising taxes to deal with it. But I bet you aren't.

    How is single payer health care going to stop/prevent an epidemic?

    3,000 people have died. I'd call that a hot zone.

    The $11.3 billion budget isn't enough to prevent Ebola from entering my country, so what makes you think raising taxes is going to do anything?
    How much money will it take to make the CDC do it's job competently? 25 billion? 100 billion?

    The problem isn't a financial one, it's; incompetency, apathy (you fulfill this in droves), and ignorance.

    First and foremost, I want the American people to know that our experts, here at the CDC and across our government, agree that the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low. We’ve been taking the necessary precautions, including working with countries in West Africa to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus doesn’t get on a plane for the United States. In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we’ve taken new measures so that we’re prepared here at home. We’re working to help flight crews identify people who are sick, and more labs across our country now have the capacity to quickly test for the virus. We’re working with hospitals to make sure that they are prepared, and to ensure that our doctors, our nurses and our medical staff are trained, are ready, and are able to deal with a possible case safely.




    OK, since I didn't read my own link tell me what Obama said when he said "In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores"

    On the day the Dallas Ebola story broke, Obama was in Chicago holding a democrat fundraiser dinner, where seats were $50,000 a piece. He doesn't care what happens to the average American. Michael Savage is calling him Barack Obola, lol.
