House Government Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said Sunday that a lack of trust in the federal government is forcing governors to mandate quarantines for those returning from West Africans nations battling Ebola.

“Governors of both parties are reacting to an absence of leadership,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
So far, New York, New Jersey and Illinois have imposed mandatory quarantines on those traveling back from West African nations.

Issa said if it is true that people who have become infected with Ebola are not contagious until they are showing symptoms, “immediate isolation of people for 21 days is not the answer.

    A couple of sites reported today that that NY nurse had ties to the CDC. People who have handled ebola patients need to be quarantined, but with respect.

  • I Seigel says:

    What does “leadership” have to do with it? FOX and CNN are fanning the flames of fear 24/7. Government can’t fight that.

    And since this is an Ebola story, it’s a good time to ask: Where has Gov Perry been in all this? He conveniently took himself out of the country – probably to burnish his foreign policy “credentials” – just at the time that the guy in Dallas was admitted to the hospital. He’s been totally absent from the scene during this entire time. Did I miss him going to the hospital for a first-hand look? Did I miss his “leadership” by telling people to remain calm? Did I miss his leadership when he declared that DFW was going to be closed to African travelers? Give me an update, please.
