Wow - first you want to close the borders to immigrant children fleeing violence and poverty and now you want to keep out 2 seriously ill humanitarian workers who also happen to be US citizens. Who's next - puppies and grandmothers?

State Department hires company to prep officials for congressional grillings, because? No need for training if these are for all the phony scandals.

Because you are a name calling progressive, because you are wrong, because the doctors should have known the risks and were able to make up their own minds where they believe they should work, because the cost associated with this entire fiasco is not the taxpayers responsibility, because of your partisan rant and because you try to prove your points from a progressive mindset. But mostly because you are wrong... again!

Make that 2 disagrees usedto. Why were they over there in the first place ??? Couldn't find anyone in this country deserving of their donated physician skills????? They were in a highly contaminated area, not just Ebola but other stuff that we don't have. Why not treat these self righteous jerks where they decided to "help" ???? Maybe they could put them up at your house.

McBoob, your true colors showed in that last post. These are AMERICAN doctors doing humanitarian service! Darn right we should bring them home. They are escorted by people in hazmat suits, for crying out loud, and placed in the most extreme isolation ever. GET INFORMED, as you so self-righteously tell every one else. You right wing zealots care only about yourselves. I wonder how you would feel if one of your children was in this situation. On second thought, being brought up in your home, no consideration for helping others would ever be considered. Your post is disgusting. I'll wait for you to tell me how wrong and low informed I am

This isn't a g-d make believe story. This is serious and for friggin real. STOP bringing infected people to the US. Who in h*ll is authorizing this stupidity??? One accident to or from a Hospital, at a Hospital or Plane could start something real ugly. The CDC might better get their heads out of...never mind...Treat them where they are, we have the means.

Ebola is exactly like the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, if you do not fight it there... it will come to you. You must fight the threats that confront the world before the threat comes to attack you where you live. Every threat must be tended to whether it is a germ or an extremists you must work to control it.
