Posted on 02/26/2020 10:39:28 AM PST by datura
House Democrats argued against diverting funding for the new coronavirus from preparing for the Ebola virus as they said that the $2.5 billion the White House wants for combating the new virus isnt adequate.
The White House submitted an emergency request to Congress on Feb. 24, asking for $2.5 billion to combat the new coronavirus, which causes the COVID-19 disease. The money was meant to help research vaccines, boost the surveillance network, and other efforts, Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar told a congressional committee in Washington on Wednesday.
Part of the proposal featured moving $535 million from the Ebola preparedness account.

Obama introduces Ebola into the US, and evidently we are spending $535 million each year since then on it? Why????
Please go to the source link and look at the freak who is in charge of this Rat committee!!!
Of course! Satan forbid that they might potentially save the life of one of the “unwashed masses”. Who knows, they might vote for Trump...why take the chance.
I hope these ignorant jerks all get CORVID19
There is no Ebola Emergency at this time and there is no plausible threat to the US health and welfare from Ebola at this time
Govt jobs. We are overrun with leeches.
Freakazoid! 535 million for Ebola that doesn’t exist in this country. This money is probably filtered into politicians accounts
“Ebola funding” is a Africa slush fund setup by Obama with the help of the Bush Family.
We don’t need another slush fund for Corona Virus.
Once the Ebola programs were created, they were never turned off or intended to end. They keep on going with increasing funding that enriches donors and family members.
Both Republicans and Democrats do not care about your tax money.
Don’t want to intermingle the slush funds.
You likely find the funding is going to cronies, constituents and supporters. The power to give out money is the whole reason for being in politics.
As a counterpoint - what do you think would happen if jihadists decided to bring ebola to the states at multiple points?
Maybe not the worst idea to have *some* kind of program to combat it. And that program *has* given us remdesavir, intended for use against ebola, that is (so far) found to be effective against the coronavirus.
Yeah, more Obama/Bush slush funds...
Yep. Must be another nest of corrupt funding.
“look at the freak who is in charge of this Rat committee!!! :”
That’s a man baby!!
Ebola, another method of Democrat gatekeeping for their plantation!
“Ebola came from Africa, do something!”
Cocid came from Asia ...yawn!
I wish I could post that photo, but the source wont let me copy it.
People need to see these Democrat freaks!!!
Was it last year that the Y2K reporting was finally shut down?
Someone needs to tell Schumer Americans come before black Africans...
Go ahead, Adam. Expose yourself to the virus and then travel through the heartland, coughing in people’s faces.
Because they say it’s not enough, they don’t want to give him anything at all. They need to pay off their donors, special interests and masters.
