LAGOP taunts Mary Landrieu over Ebola travel ban issue

 landrieu-mary-youngThe Louisiana GOP is taunting Mary Landrieu over the Ebola ban issue.

Today, the LAGOP issued this statement:

 

The Republican Party of Louisiana today asked Senator Mary Landrieu to call for a travel ban to help combat the continued spread of the deadly Ebola virus.

As more and more potential cases of Ebola are uncovered, it becomes more of a serious public health issue for the United States. Despite the mounting threat, Senator Mary Landrieu has still not called for a travel ban or restrictions for individuals coming from West Africa. Congressman Dr. Bill Cassidy yesterday said such restrictions would help control the virus and ensure the safety and health of Americans.

Senator Landrieu was also largely absent earlier this year as the border security and humanitarian crisis unfolded right next door to Louisiana.
“Senator Landrieu continues to pass the buck on important issues of national security, and the time for her to step up and take a bold stand is long past,” LAGOP Executive Director Jason Doré said. “Dr. Cassidy is showing the kind of leadership Louisiana needs on this and other critical issues, and it is exactly this kind of leadership that has been missing from Senator Landrieu for too long.”

However, according to a report in the Huffington Post, there are no direct flights from the key African nations to the United States.

Also, today, Mike Leavitt, the former Secretary of Health and Human Services for President George Bush said on MSNBC that he does not favor a travel ban based upon his discussions with experts.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since edwards midDemocrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
