Small government and Texas secession advocate Governor Rick Perry of Texas wanted to close the CDC (Center for Disease Control) when he was running for president. It was the one he said he couldn’t remember at the debates.
Small government and Texas secession advocate Governor Rick Perry of Texas then complains when the CDC (you know, the one he wanted to shut down) doesn’t act fast enough to contain a disease that has spread beyond Texas due to incompetence on the part of a private hospital, regulations for which are under his control as governor of that state, all while he is on vacation in Europe. Yes, its a hospital. And it doesn’t know how to contain a disease. A hospital. But then again, we’re talking about Texas.
Oh and BTW, in case you wanted to blame this on the fact that Obama won’t put a travel ban in place, the man who brought Ebola to Texas came from Belgium, not West Africa, so this idiotic travel ban they talk about wouldn’t have helped anyway.
Then, when the CDC (you know, the agency he wanted to shut down) does step in, there has not been a case of someone getting Ebola from another hospital anywhere else in the country. Not One.
Sheesh. This is getting too easy.
