Ebola Preparedness

My mother was talking about the nation's poor state of readiness for Ebola.

I thought about it, and then asked her how much more she would be willing to pay for a state of readiness approaching 100% ; how much would it cost to drill medical people many times a year and to have constant readiness seminars to try to ensure that proper procedures are followed?

It would cost a lot, and this country is not willing to pay for it yet.
That is why all the kvetching about the response to Ebola so far strikes me as idiotic irony, for it would cost a lot of money and not one person complaining about it presently has said that they would pony up.
