Obama Quarantines Soldiers, but Ebola Doctors, Nurses Can Do Whatever they Want

Barack Obama

Yesterday, before taking off to attend a campaign event in Wisconsin, President Obama spoke to the press about the issue of Ebola. He praised the health care workers who are fighting the disease in West Africa, and indicated that he disagreed with the quarantine policies that the governors of New York and New Jersey have sought to implement for them. He doesn’t like these quarantines because they are insufficiently “supportive” of the efforts of the health care workers, and because they contribute to a climate of fear.
