CBS reports that Obama-appointed Ebola ‘czar’ Klain has no medical or health care background. A Democratic senator praises the choice of Biden’s former chief of staff while a Republican senator criticizes it. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.:
I’ve known Ron Klain for over twenty years. He is smart, aggressive, and levelheaded; exactly the qualities we need in a czar to steer our response to Ebola. He is an excellent choice.
Worst ebola epidemic in world history and Pres. Obama puts a government bureaucrat with no healthcare experience in charge. Is he serious?
