... the estimated half a million dollars it has cost to care for the self-centered idiot who brought Ebola to North America.
We will pay for it in taxes, in the deficit, in inflation, in increased insurance premiums. It takes almost no time at all in an intensive care unit with a ventilator to run up big money. I know all too well. The hospital doesn't eat those costs. Obamacare isn't going to fix it.
This is one patient. There may be another already sick in Dallas.
Ebola will be expensive not only in terms of human suffering but in dollars. We cannot save the world, but we can do our best to keep this plague out of the United States.
