18. It's not ignoring the problem, it's acknowledging it

As for point number one, we can't stop terrorists from entering this country, either, but we can make it harder for them to do so. Same as with people who may be harboring this disease. We cannot prevent someone completely determined with vast means from coming here, but we can drastically reduce the numbers who do get through.

As for point number two, where have I ever said that we shouldn't do anything about the hot zones? Hazmat suits, fluids, medications, etc. should be shipped to West Africa as fast as possible in great quantities, if every American city tries to stockpile as much of this as it can, it will reduce the amount available to the hot zones.

Our approach needs to have both parts in order to work.
