Two Republican lawmakers are calling for the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to resign after it was reported a second healthcare worker in Dallas contracted the virus.

Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) said CDC Director Tom Frieden should resign “immediately,” faulting the health agency’s communications.

In a statement, he charged that information released to the public has been “cryptic and in some cases misleading,” lending to a “false sense of security.”

    Great idea. Fire the person in charge during an emergency, then let the post go unfilled for several weeks or months while hearings and vettings take place and political hacks prance before the Fox cameras. That’s like firing the captain of a plane flying at 40,000 feet whose engine just caught fire.

    If anyone did not know this is the same man who worked with Mayor Bloomberg in New York City to stop people from smoking in the open, drinking sugared drinks larger than 24 oz, and a host of other socialistic programs and policies. So he was ripe for the picking when the President needed a new director for the CDC. When the Obama administration was moving in, the then Bush CDC, warned them about the potential of several dangerous diseases and they should set up world wide centers to treat those with the illnesses as well as to start research on coming up with medication and/or possible vaccines for these viruses, Ebola being one of them. Thus keeping them under control and out of the US. But no, they knew what to do and that did not include hearing anything from the Bush administration.

    This is nothing but an Obama clown

    Better yet, Obama should resign. He has put US citizens at risk for no reason, but to pander to those countries — enough!! Their economy is not as important as the health of US citizens. Then we need to close our borders.

      I must have missed your post when you called for Bush and Cheney to resign after 9/11. After all, they were on duty and dropped the ball big time, and because of their poor management, thousands ACTUALLY died. After Katrina, did you call for their resignation? After Abu Ghrab? Many people actually died, you know. How many so far from Ebola in America? One? Two?

    Good news. At least someone is trying to remove another one of Obama’s controlled ‘bot’s!’
