UPDATE: The Washington Times reports that Ron Klain has been named Obama's Ebola czar.
Responding to urgent calls from Congress and a fearful public, President Obama has tapped a former White House official to serve as his “Ebola czar.”
Ron Klain, an attorney who worked for Vice Presidents Joe Biden and Al Gore, is president of Case Holdings, which handles business interests for former AOL CEO Steve Case, and general counsel at Revolution LLC, a tech-focused venture capital firm in Washington, according to the White House.
Cumbersome CPAP machines or risky surgery are not the only answers to solving sleep apnea.
He will be the point-person in charge of responding to the deadly virus in the U.S., and will report directly to Homeland Security Adviser Lisa Monaco and National Security Adviser Susan Rice.
Although Mr. Klain does not come from the public health sector, the White House said he possesses “strong management credentials, extensive federal government experience overseeing complex operations and good working relationships with leading members of Congress, as well as senior Obama administration officials, including the president.”
Editor's Note: So, this administration thinks the best way to deal with the Ebola outbreak is to appoint a czar who doesn't come from the health sector, thus having no real knowledge of the disease, but because of "strong management credentials" and "federal government experience" he'll do just fine, right? What could possibly go wrong in this scenario? Seeing how it's already gone wrong with people who work in the public health sector, I'd say Mr. Klain is being set up as the willing scapegoat.
The original article follows.
Because the answer to big failure by big government is always…more government.
Reuters is now reporting that Obama is actually considering appointing an Ebola czar to quote, "coordinate the fight against the virus in the United States," but the outlet went on to note that Obama remains opposed to banning flights from the Ebola hot zone in West Africa.
And really that's all that needs to be said here.
This government has mishandled the response to this virus at every possible turn to the point that a growing number of people believe the whole thing is a blown-out-of-proportion hoax. Well, at this point, it's either a hoax, or some people are working extra hard at allowing themselves to look like total idiots while purposefully making sure the virus spreads in this country.
To clarify, Obama is going to appoint an Ebola czar to tell him more nonsense about how to stop Ebola from coming here other than banning the very flights which Americans have been told are the only way Ebola has ever come here in the history of its existence.
An Ebola czar… What a complete load of b.s.
No wonder people who still have any faith in this system whatsoever are completely freaking out. It's beyond obvious how broken and useless it is.
