"I make the argument that the Centers for Disease Control, that they are the vital organ of this health infrastructure, and doctor — the head of it, Dr. Frieden has been a very good leader," she said. "But what I am concerned about and really frustrated is that we didn’t take this initial encounter in Dallas at the level that it should have been."
In short, Jackson Lee echoed the false claim made by an offensive Democratic Party ad intended to stoke hate and fear against Republicans. The claim made by the ad is so outrageous the Washington Post's fact checker gave it "four Pinocchos," the lowest rating possible.
"On many levels," Glenn Kessler said, the line of attack being used by Democrats "is absurd." Kessler noted that Congress gave the agency more than Obama requested, but some was taken back by sequestration -- an idea that came out of the Obama White House. Additionally, there was never a vote specifically aimed at Ebola research as the ad suggests. In short, the ad is patently false. And so is the claim by Democrats like Sheila Jackson Lee.
