Ignored? Maybe so. But...
Giant headline the Washington Times today: Obama ignored 2008 CDC transition advice on Ebola.
You have to go to page 5 and almost the bottom of the article to hit that whole funding problem with the last three Congresses. Yeah. He ignored the advice, or Congress slashed the CDC's budget way every year? No reason it can't be both, of course, but he could have been obsessed with it and not been able to do a damned thing.
The Times is deep in the Foxosphere.
