    Why dont you FOR ONCE, be specific and explain exactly how " budget cuts " led to this man getting on a plane ?

    Or are you going to continue to embarrass yourself ?
    The estimate is that about 200,000-400,000 people are going to contract Ebola in Africa this year. Every expert in the field has concluded it will get to the US. It has nothing to do with Customs. Like a typical conservative you're deluding yourself. So we better prepare to treat it here.

    Now, what party slashed the budget of the CDC? Say it loud, Fenton, say it loud!

    How about raising taxes on the rich to pay for preventing a huge epidemic. It appear all the conservative talking points are collapsing on this one.

    Yes, because Ebola just popped up out of nowhere in the last 2 years.

    No, it didn't exist back in the 70s or 80s or 90s ( it so existed )

    Thanks you GOP, for making the US vulnerable to dread diseases, just so you can cater to low information voters in trailer parks. The irony is, many of them are in Texas, where Ebola has struck.
    The CDC's budget was $11.4 BILLION in the 2014FY. Are you telling me they can't prepare a response on that?

    So it's OK to cut $600M from the CDC when we face a new dangerous disease.

    I guess this is how conservatives "think".

    And the answer is, of course, NO, since the CDC has a lot to do besides track down and contain Ebola. And now they have a lot less money to do it with. Thanks to conservatives and their freakish desire to shut down the government.

    Re: North Texas Patient Tested for Ebola Virus

    By the way, a GOP House investigation committee (having nothing better to do but attack Obama) resulted in two CDC research labs involving dangerous diseases being shut down a few months ago.

    Thank you, conservatives, for putting your weird ideology over public safety once again.

    Why were those labs shutdown ??

    I mean are you seriously trying to defend what happened at the CDC that led to those actions being taken ?? Is anyone but George Bush responsible for their actions in your twisted world view ??

    So it was budget cuts that allowed an Ebola victim access into the US.

    I wondered what happened to all those Ebola screenings I used to get from airport security.

    Yep, it was " budget cuts "....

    I'm beginning to think Sheila Jackson Lee might be posting here under the pseudonym of " Faceofbachman ".

    Oh and it was GOP budget cuts that led to the murder of the four Americans in Benghazi.

    Maybe the Mexican gov't should curtail flights from Texas.

    Too bad it's not reducing our 17 trillion dollar debt.
