Ya of course it is obamas fault Ebola made it to America.
How the hell does that even make sense!
How many people have died from Ebola in America btw?
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on Friday called on the Obama administration to impose a travel ban on flights coming to the U.S. from countries with Ebola outbreaks.
“We should stop accepting flights from countries that are Ebola stricken,” the Republican governor said in a statement.
“President Obama said it was ‘unlikely’ that Ebola would reach the U.S.
“President Obama said it was ‘unlikely’ that Ebola would reach the U.S. Well, it has, and we need to protect our people,” he added. “But the Obama administration keeps saying they won’t shut down flights. They instead say we should listen to ‘the experts.’ In fact, they said it would be counterproductive to stop these flights. That statement defies logic. How exactly would stopping the entry of people potentially carrying the Ebola virus be counterproductive? This seems to be an obvious step to protect public health in the United States.”
Obama administration scraps quarantine regulations,
The Obama administration has quietly scrapped plans to enact sweeping new federal quarantine regulations that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention touted four years ago as critical to protecting Americans from dangerous diseases spread by travelers.
The regulations, proposed in 2005 during the Bush administration amid fears of avian flu, would have given the federal government additional powers to detain sick airline passengers and those exposed to certain diseases. They also would have expanded requirements for airlines to report ill passengers to the CDC and mandated that airlines collect and maintain contact information for fliers in case they later needed to be traced as part of an investigation into an outbreak
"That's the promise of America then and that's the promise of America now. People who love this country can change it. America isn't Congress.
President Obama on Thursday urged frustrated Latinos to stick by his side, fervently vowing to act on his own to slow deportations by the end of the year.
But the growing disillusionment among Hispanic activists over the president’s decision to delay action was evident when a heckler interrupted him during his speech at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute gala in Washington.
“If anyone wants to know where my heart is or if I want to have this fight, let me put those questions to rest right now,” Obama told the audience. “I am not going to give up this fight until it gets done.”
The protester, identified by organizers as Blanca Hernandez, 31, seconds later shouted, “Mr. President, stop the deportations. We need relief now.”

He is delaying action until after the mid term elections, to rule by executive decision on the amnesty that most Americans already had voiced to their voted representatives that they don't want it, like me.
The man is out of control.
