Who is president?
Who is in charge?
I get so tired of Obama taking credit for anything remotely good.
Yet blaming Bush or republicans for anything bad.
The cuts started when Bush was in office so yes he gets blamed as well.

You can’t have your cake and eat it too folks.
You’ll have run your mouths over and over about this GOP philosophy of cut taxes so when the money ain't there for stuff like Ebola IT’S YOUR FAULT!
Man up and admit your philosophy has failed.
Apr 10, 2013 (CIDRAP News) – The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) takes a hit of about $270 million in the Obama administration's proposed fiscal year 2014 budget, including significant cuts to biodefense and emergency preparedness programs, officials revealed today.
CDC Director Tom Frieden, MD, speaking at a Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) press conference, said the "overall program budget would come down by about $270 million" under the budget proposal, compared with spending in fiscal year 2012.

Yes and they are using the Ebola scare to sell Glenn 20 too! I have just seen adds for Glen 20 and I have not seen those for years. What a crack up. I think I would want to use something more powerful than that.
Look at the numbers. Instead of all these mystical 'cuts, what we see is a growth in spending under Republican control that gradually leveled off once Presdient Barack Hussein Obama and a veto proof Democrat congress came to town.
You see any major cuts there, except the proposed one in 2015...that came from President Obama's proposed budget?
