Amazing comments from RoseAnn DeMoro, the head of National Nurses United. It’s become unusual to hear blunt talk about the Obama regime, but we now have a situation where it’s becoming clear to everyone Obama’s incompetent and he’s surrounded himself with smug, inexperienced 30-year-olds and idiotic leftists who view the average citizen as a distracting irritant.
Thank goodness the nurses have a leader who isn’t afraid to confront the maniacs who are putting her members at risk. Ms. DeMoro is a liberal, and early in September called for a “Robin Hood tax” on banks to help with funding to assist with any reaction to Ebola here. She’s finding out that no amount of money in the world helps if the White House and CDC itself ignores and lies to you.
RoseAnn DeMoro stood in front of 300 nurses in an auditorium in Oakland, Calif. on Tuesday afternoon, while 11,500 more nurses listened on the phone. Two of their own had just contracted Ebola, and she was furious.
“We’ve been lied to in terms of the preparation in the hospitals,” she declared. “We’ve been essentially ignored by the White House and the CDC, and they’ve been giving the hospitals far too much credit in assuming that they would actually be taking their advice.”
DeMoro’s union — the 185,000-member National Nurses United — has for weeks been decrying the lack of protective measures at the Dallas hospital where an Ebola patient had been treated. Then, while other groups issued mild statements or nothing at all, they sent a letter to President Obama, Congress, federal agencies and state governors demanding more protections for health-care personnel. “If the nurses controlled the resources, there wouldn’t be an Ebola crisis in this country,” she roared to her fellow nurses, singling out declining emergency preparedness budgets.
