Ebola: The GOP’s Budget-Cutting Chickens Come Home To Roost

Finally, some plain talk and common sense about the GOP’s intellectually bankrupt ideology of savaging government and then blaming it for everything that goes wrong:

Roger Rabbit iconConservatives can’t bash and slash government and then suddenly act surprised if government isn’t there when we need it. After all, anti-government rhetoric and anti-tax austerity have real-life consequences …[that are] playing out at this very moment in the public health response to Ebola. …  Sadly, for the past generation or so, Republicans have attacked the very idea of government while implementing policies that erode its effectiveness …. It is only when something like Ebola happens that Americans realize how much we actually need government to work on our behalf.”
