Sen. John Cornyn recently stated the “CDC did not have operational control” at Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas.
Thus, the vaunted Texas Model of low taxes, limited government is responsible for the Ebola fiasco. This “model” is a mantra of valueless slogans that have made us less safe, less healthy, less wealthy, less educated.
The model is “treat and to the street.” Rather than cure indigents, the hospital’s ER protocol stabilizes them for discharge. The Ebola crisis shows the gross inadequacy of this philosophy.
Acceptable losses are an integral part of the Republican Party’s platform.
Preserve the American ideal of no one left behind. Vote Democrat.
