Nigeria has been declared officially free of Ebola after six weeks with no new cases, the World Health Organization (WHO) says.

According to the BBC, the Spanish nurse who was the first person to contract Ebola outside of West Africa has tested negative for the virus (a second test is required before she’ll be officially free of the disease). And the United States has reached an important milestone: the 21-day monitoring period for the 48 people who had contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who died of Ebola in Dallas, ended on Sunday and Monday. Aside from the two nurses who cared for him, there have been no new infections.

Easy to understand.  Robert Reich speaks directly on what the 'public option' is and why it is so important to health care reform.

I have been horribly betrayed by the Democrats as a gay man, as a liberal, as an atheist, and as a middle class American. If the Democrats are so corrupt and classist that they join the Republicans in blocking the bare minimum of a public option for health insurance, the Democratic Party is a lost cause.

Those pieces of walking garbage should have passed a single payer healthcare plan by now. I will vote against every incumbent Democrat on the ballot and go strictly Green if they tell me to shut up and die without healthcare by opposing the public option.
