The White House has informed a U.S. House of Representatives Committee that the newly appointed U.S. Ebola "czar" will not be available to testify later this week at a hearing examining the U.S. response to the deadly virus, a committee official said.Probably too busy studying up on medicine, seeing that he's not a doctor. But, that should leave more time for questions for others;
The committee, chaired by California Republican Representative Darrell Issa, a frequent Obama critic, has also invited Dr. Nicole Lurie, the assistant secretary for preparedness and response within the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, to testify.
Lurie has confirmed that she will appear, the committee official said.And that woman is a doctor! So, we'll be curious as to why she isn't the Ebola Czar.
