I find it irrational thinking on the part of the government that we send "boots on the ground" to help combat Ebola. They are targets of a disease they are now saying it is an airborne transmitted disease. My concern is they will be bringing infected soldiers back.
We may not agree on everything but I bet we could find some common ground.
CDCís new Ebola model estimates the potential future impact of the epidemic. According to the modelís worst case scenario, which assumes no change in the trajectory of the epidemic and also corrects for underreporting, the number of Ebola cases in Liberia and Sierra Leone together could reach 1.4 million by the end of January 2015. This translates into a whopping 14% cumulative prevalence rate. To put this in perspective, an equivalent rate in the U.S. population would be almost 45 million people nationally, and more than 90,000 in Washington, DC alone.
If something even close to this scenario occurs, it'll be a financial wipe-out in the markets.

You bring in Sebelius to revamp the CDC. Problem solved two continents saved...
What's tragic to me is that these people assumed they would be safe and contracted a deadly disease while treating a man who died anyways.
