WaPo – DCCC Attack Ads on Ebola ‘Absurd!’


On many levels, this line of attack is absurd.

Obama’s Republican predecessor oversaw big increases in public-health sector spending, and both Democrats and Republicans in recent years have broadly supported efforts to rein in federal spending. Sequestration resulted from a bipartisan agreement. In some years, Congress has allocated more money for NIH and CDC than the Obama administration requested. Meanwhile, contrary to the suggestion of the DCCC ad, there never was a specific vote on funding to prevent Ebola.

We know.  And the money they got they wasted.

The real problem is, of course, that no amount of money can make the government more competent, and if recent Democrat spending is any guideline , more money makes them less competent.
