    CDC Ebola Failure Will Add to Public Distrust of Government

    Originally Published in Townhall.com on 8/21/14.

    It’s no wonder Americans don’t trust the government. Sandwiched between ideological zealots at the IRS and the EPA and massive corruption at the Veterans Administration, the public is being exposed to the consequences of bureaucracies running wild.

    President Obama is adding to the public’s discontent with the government. Obama’s high profile lies about his health-care plan and his insistence that there is “not even a smidgen of corruption” regarding the IRS targeting Tea Party groups are most certainly adding to the public’s distrust of government.

    According to a recent CNN poll, only 12 percent feel the government can be trusted most of the time while a whopping 75 percent trust the government only some of the time.
