US Rep. Steve Scalise Grills CDC Director Frieden at Ebola House Hearing about Travel Ban


It should be frightening to all Americans that the CDC is this political …

US Rep. Steve Scalise(R-LA) confronted CDC Director Frieden over the Ebola situation and putting a travel ban in place or at the very least to stop issuing visas to individuals from  Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea to the US. The answers that he received from the CDC Director were nothing short of political stonewalling and non-answers.

How can there not be a travel ban from individuals from West Africa, after all … that’s how other African countries saved themselves, they closed their borders.  So if it was good for African countries to do so, why is it also not okay for America? What is Obama’s issue and agenda? During the hearing the CDC director claimed that CDC was open to travel ban. Hmm … but is Obama and will it be too late if he finally is forced to?

      I am so angered by Obama. How dare he put my children’s lives on the line. He is the one who will be held responsible and accountable when Ebola kills Americans. He will go down in history as the first president who deliberately exposed the mass population to a deadly disease. The Dems will pay for this.

      Today it got more frightening with the appointment of Ron Klain to oversee that Ebola crisis. Kain is Obama’s longtime political hand with no apparent medical or health care background.

      A Political Appointee?

      Senior Republicans criticize Ebola ‘czar’ choice for lack of medical background
      Published October 17, 2014

      Both Upton and Murphy called for immediate travel restrictions to halt the spread of the disease.

      Said one senior GOP congressional source, who asked not to be identified, “I think it’s a bizarre pick. He may have a good reputation as manager within the Democratic party. But Republicans see him exclusively as a political operative who’s been at the heart of the some of the most partisan events of the past two decades.” …

      Everything in this administration is political. This is the only thing that Socialists know. When the person in charge has zero experience in management of anything, he falls back on politics and campaigning.

      “Hope and Change” a message to conceal his ineptness.

      Ditto to all you have said.

      Have gut level feeling our government isn’t telling us everything!

      Am so tired of the Kings, oops, President’s trips to LA. Must sure cost us a pretty penny. The protocol is fund-raising, not leading!

      Kind wishes to all now and in the future who come down with ebola, that their health recovers.

      Oh, prof. at Purdue was on TV talking about it being airborne. Another was stating how long it remains on knobs, seats, etc.

      So glad to see you here from and

      also Hi Klaas and Red!
