‘‘Evil Republican funding cuts caused ebola– Oh, wait!’’

The Federalist:

President Obama Already Has An Ebola Czar. Where Is She?
...The federal government not ten years ago created and funded a brand new office in the Health and Human Services Department specifically to coordinate preparation for and response to public health threats like Ebola.  The woman who heads that office, and reports directly to the HHS secretary, has been mysteriously invisible from the public handling of this threat.  And she’s still on the job even though three years ago she was embroiled in a huge scandal of funneling a major stream of funding to a company with ties to a Democratic donor—and away from a company that was developing a treatment now being used on Ebola patients.
Oh, and by the way...
HHS’s 70,000 workers will spend a total of $958 billion this year, or about $7,789 for every U.S. household.
I’m old enough to recall all the posturing when the entire federal budget crossed $100 Billion.
