The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed the first Ebola case diagnosed in the United States.
It appears the patient is being treated at a hospital in Texas, as three public health and hospital officials from the state are scheduled to appear at a news briefing at CDC headquarters in Atlanta at5:30 p.m Eastern time.

I suggest that the President ask the Congress to authorize immediate and necessary funding to combat this pandemic force, and in effect ask for a blank check up to $50 billion. Oh, and at the same time ask for authorization to engage in activity (might even call it war) on ISIL in the Middle-East. You think Congress might get to work...or are the Republicans just too busy with distractions to be bothered?
