Don’t blame Obama for Ebola

The GOP is trying to place the blame for Ebola entirely on Obama.

They point out that the United States has been without a surgeon general for more than a year. However, they neglect to mention the reason is the threat of the GOP filibuster. The GOP cut funding 40 percent on hospital preparedness programs; cut funding for the National Institute of Health by more than 10 percent; and cut funding for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention by more than 17 percent.

The fact that nurses are sent into these quarantined rooms without the proper protective clothing is criminal.

Disgraceful GOP supporters are selling bumper stickers that say things like “EBOLA — Obama’s Legacy to America.”

Absolutely sickening.
