Ebola vs. AIDS

It is rather amusing to have people complain about the federal government’s response to Ebola as it relates to President Obama.

I like to remind people of President Reagan’s response to AIDS, which killed 20,000 people in our country before Reagan mentioned the word.

Behind the scenes his administration found AIDS to be a gay cancer, as it was called at the time, and they were recorded laughing about it.

He never attended the first AIDS conference in DC. Please stop bashing President Obama. He is doing the right thing.
