budget-term-of-the-week

If some new "terrorist threat" popped up overseas that caused as much hysteria in America as Ebola has, politicians wouldn't have any trouble passing a 30 billion dollar long term military budget that week.

Yet our politicians are splitting hairs over a plan to fix the worst Ebola outbreak ever that would cost less than a billion. If we invested a mere fraction of what we do making missiles to “fight ISIS” on fixing Ebola, we could have it completely contained and within a short time eradicated just like smallpox.
