“Leave it to President Obama to put a liberal political activist in charge of the administration’s Ebola response. If reports are true, his so-called Ebola Czar will be someone with no medical background, but who was responsible for administering the failed 2009 Obama stimulus program. Yet again, this president is more concerned with ideology than competence.
 
“If the Obama Administration wants to gain the faith of the American people in the face of a serious public health threat, they should start with a travel ban on people coming from Ebola hot zones, and a CDC Director who will ensure that there are select medical centers that are fully-equipped and trained to handle Ebola patients. The testimony we heard yesterday from Dr. Tom Frieden added to my existing concerns about his ability to handle the crisis. The time has come for the CDC Director to resign.”
