Promoters of free trade insist that our economy can absorb these astronomical health care costs, but they drive up health insurance premiums for everyone.

If it makes sense to tell Americans not to go there, then the Obama Administration should not welcome infected people from those countries to come here. We need to take control of our national borders. Billions of taxpayer dollars are currently spent on disease control that could be more cheaply and more effectively used to halt the flow of illegal aliens over our southern border.
