Waiting for Ebola Response Funding

The Ebola crisis in West Africa might complicate congressional action on a stopgap spending bill to keep the government operating beyond the Oct. 1 start of the new fiscal year.

Several lawmakers at a hearing on the Ebola crisis during last month’s recess urged Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Thomas Frieden to request more money. However, in an interview with CQ HealthBeat on Wednesday, Frieden noted that spending is already authorized for global disease detection and response, and he avoided detailing additional funding needs specifically in response to the Ebola crisis. The administration’s proposed budget submitted before the virus outbreak requested $42.5 million in added spending for global health programs.

The continuing resolution might include additional money to support the international medical response to Ebola, but CQ Roll Call’s Tamar Hallerman reported today that congressional Republican leaders are seeking to avoid too many new spending provisions in a stopgap bill, which would extend current spending levels and policy directives through Dec. 11 or 12.

    In this great scheme of things you get a B- for effort and hard work. Where exactly you misplaced me was on all the details. As as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be much more correct at this point. Having said that, allow me say to you exactly what did work. Your writing is definitely quite persuasive and this is probably why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can certainly notice the jumps in logic you make, I am not necessarily sure of just how you appear to connect your ideas that make your final result. For right now I will yield to your point however wish in the future you link your facts better.

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
