NRSC - Shaheen Defers to Obama on Ebola 

Shaheen Silent as Obama Picks Partisan,
DC Lobbyist as Ebola Czar 

The Obama Administration’s response to the Ebola virus has been roundly criticized as inept and incompetent. In fact, a former top advisor to Harry Reid told the Washington Post that the Administration's handling of Ebola feeds the "narrative that Democrats don't know how to govern and government is too large."

President Obama's response to the Ebola epidemic is to appoint partisan lobbyist Ron Klain as the Administration’s point man. As National Review explains "Ron Klain is a sharp-elbowed Democratic political operative with no medical expertise. Tapping him as 'Ebola czar' may not be the president’s best move when, as it is, no one can believe a word the Obama administration says. And that’s not just because Mr. Klain is yet another lobbyist recruited despite Mr. Obama’s vow that his administration would shun lobbyists."

Unfortunately, Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) not only refuses to hold the Obama Administration accountable for the slow response to Ebola entering our borders, but it appears that she has taken her marching orders from the White House on a serious matter of public health. Instead, Shaheen's Washington allies have resorted to spreading false and debunked claims, blaming others for the Administration's failures. President Obama's choice of Ron Klain as Ebola Czar is indefensible, yet Jeanne Shaheen once again refuses to hold the White House accountable.

"It is absurd that President Obama believes that a partisan lobbyist with zero medical experience should lead the national response to the Ebola epidemic, but Jeanne Shaheen is nowhere to be found," said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. "Jeanne Shaheen apparently believes that a partisan Washington lobbyist like Ron Klain is an appropriate choice for this position, which speaks to her lack of judgment and her refusal to stand up to President Obama’s poor decisions - even on matters of public health and safety."

BACKGROUND:

A Top Official At The National Institutes of Health Debunked Democrats False Claims That Budget Cuts Were To Blame For Lack Of Ebola Vaccine. "A top official at the National Institutes of Health disagreed on Sunday with the notion that an Ebola vaccine likely would have been discovered by now had it not been for federal budget cuts." (NIH Official: Budget Cuts Can't Be Blamed For Lack Of Ebola Vaccine, The Huffington Post10/20/2014)

The Washington Post’s Fact Checker Called Attacks Blaming Republicans For Cutting Ebola Research Funding “Absurd” And Gave It Four Pinocchios. “On many levels, this line of attack is absurd. Obama’s Republican predecessor oversaw big increases in public-health sector spending, and both Democrats and Republicans in recent years have broadly supported efforts to rein in federal spending. Sequestration resulted from a bipartisan agreement. In some years, Congress has allocated more money for NIH and CDC than the Obama administration requested. Meanwhile, contrary to the suggestion of the DCCC ad, there never was a specific vote on funding to prevent Ebola.” (Glenn Kessler, “The Absurd Claim That Only Republicans Are To Blame For Cuts To Ebola Research,” The Washington Post, 10/15/14)

Newsmax - Obama Linked to Global Warming Lie, New Report Reveals 

Newsmax

Breaking News Alert:

A NASA scientist (and former adviser to the White House) recently put together a 164-page document proving “global warming” is a blatant lie.

A lie created to pad the back pockets of greedy corporations, corrupt politicians, and bought-off scientists with $41,856 of taxpayer money . . . every minute!

I recently got my hands on this 164-page document . . . and I have to say, it’s a historical game-changer that even links a $22 billion scandal to President Obama.

This document is a must-read exposé, which is why I put together a free report that reveals some of the key findings.

NH GOP - DEM SENATOR FLIPS ON EBOLA TRAVEL BAN AS SHAHEEN STANDS WITH OBAMA 

Concord - Endangered North Carolina Senator Kay Hagen (D-NC) today flip-flopped her position on a travel ban on Ebola "hot zone" countries, announcing her support for it only two days after she opposed it.  Senator Jeanne Shaheen continues to stand with President Obama and oppose a commonsense travel ban.

 

"Senator Shaheen continues to stand with President Obama and oppose a travel ban from countries afflicted by the Ebola virus. Her blind allegiance to the President's failed policies is shameful and proves that she is unwilling to provide independent leadership for New Hampshire," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "It's time for Jeanne Shaheen and President Obama to impose Ebola travel restrictions to keep Americans safe from disease."

Senator Kelly Ayotte, Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown and even liberal Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter support travel restrictions on Ebola affected countries.

NH GOP - OBAMA/SHAHEEN WRONG TO OPPOSE EBOLA TRAVEL BAN 

Concord - Senator Jeanne Shaheen and President Obama continue to oppose an Ebola travel ban, but such a temporary measure is needed to keep Americans safe from unnecessary risk of exposure to the deadly virus.

 

Yesterday, Shaheen told New England Cable News in an interview: "I don't think at this stage that a travel ban makes sense." Yet, it is precisely at the early stage of an outbreak that a travel ban makes the most sense.

 

"Senator Shaheen and President Obama are wrong to oppose a travel ban from countries afflicted by the Ebola virus. Many African countries have successfully imposed a ban to stop the spread of Ebola, and we must do the same. What is happening in Texas started with one infected patient who came here from Liberia," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "It's time for Jeanne Shaheen and President Obama to impose Ebola travel restrictions to keep Americans safe from disease."
