“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
One other thing that bothers me is that people are still dieing in South Africa, but the people that come here for treatment get better. If there is a drug available for treatment, why aren't we sending it to help the people who live in other countries? That would stop the trend that seems inevitable at this point.
There is no drug available beyond experimental. The difference between here and Africa is the level of care.

Just as frightening, the CDC forecast that as many as 1.4 million people could be infected by the deadly virus by year-end if the outbreak doesn't come under control.
That's 1.4 million. With a near-50% death rate, Ebola is more deadly than even the Black Plague. That could mean 700,000 people dead, if it's not controlled.
Given the clear danger to the U.S., why hasn't the White House imposed travel limits on those flying in from Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone and other nations in West Africa where the disease has broken out?
That would seem a minimal response to containing this deadly hemorrhagic fever that causes many victims to suffer a horrible, lingering death.
Both France and Britain immediately halted flights from the afflicted countries in West Africa. Why not us?

7,500 infected with about a 45% mortality rate. That's not a contagion to fear?
And just think, bringing Ebola to the US could have probably been prevented.
