Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with this guy?
The No. 2 Democrat in the Senate on Tuesday seemed to blame House Republicans’ opposition to a comprehensive immigration reform bill for the lack of trained doctors in African nations now struggling to contain a deadly outbreak of the Ebola virus.
Sen. Richard Durbin, Illinois Democrat, said that the immigration bill — which passed the Senate last year but has not been brought up for a vote in the House amid strong Republican resistance — contained measures requiring some doctors to remain in their home countries in Africa before they could be “recruited” to practice in the U.S.
Yes, he’s actually politicizing a virus now. Dude needs help.
Mr. Durbin suggested that, had the House GOP embraced the legislation, there would be more trained physicians in countries such as Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, where the Ebola outbreak now is spiraling out of control.
This doesn’t even come close to making the slightest bit of sense. Then again, we’re dealing with the biggest Dick in Washington.
