"You know...we have to be very careful about letting politicians make medical and public-health decisions", whined Kaci Hickox the Ebola quarantined nurse to Candy Crowley, as reported in HuffingtonfPost. 
Nurse Hickox' complaint sounds an awful lot like what we who oppose Democrat Care, aka ObamaCare, have been saying. The difference is when we criticize politicians running health care, the Communist Party USA says we should be called RACISTS, since our African American president's name is on the sacred act that turned individual medical care into public health.
About as soon as Hickox opened her mouth about inhumane treatment in her Ebola isolation tent in New Jersey, social media chorused that she was a left wing Obama supporter who worked for the CDC. One need not have an extremely twisted sense of humor to get a belly laugh out of that one. On Sunday it was reported that Hickox had hired former Occupy Wall Street and civil rights attorney Norman Siegel to effect her release from Governor Christie's isolation tent jail. Siegel is quoted in referring to Hickox' confinement it, "...raised substantial civil liberties issues." 
Earlier Hickox wrote an editorial published in www.dallasnews.com . An included short bio for Hickox says she has a nursing degree from UTA. She holds a Masters Degree in public-health and nursing from Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore and had a CDC fellowship in epidemiology.
In her editorial Hickox bitterly criticized the, "frenzy of disorganization, [and] fear," she encountered from officials upon returning to the US from the Ebola hot zone.  The TSA screeners with their thermometers apparently acted more like cops, than medical professionals.
This and Hickox' quarantine for the public good, in the clutches of Governor Christie, reminds me of the few Tweets that say, "Don't politicize Ebola". (Which is a humorous comment since politicians are being pressured to cough up tax dollars, commit troops and in the case of America, import Ebola cases here for treatment, to stop the epidemic in Africa.)
Since Democrat Care, aka ObamaCare has politicized all medical care in the US I doubt politicizing Ebola can be avoided any more than politicization of school lunch has been avoided. School lunch is now a matter of "national security".  We can add to that list politicized Big Gulps and cigarettes. A frenzy of disorganization and fear has replaced individual choices and individual doctor to patient care as the federal government has mandated government-centered care in the name of public health.
Nurse Hickox doesn't want and openly defies politicians who tell her what to do, all the while politicians ARE making medical and public health decisions for the rest of us. We are expected to accept this paternalism and shut up because government knows what's best, after all. That former CDC employee Hickox is openly defiant  when government paternalism messes up her life, to me is rank hypocrisy.
Governor Chris Christie under pressure all the way from the White House, defended his quarantine, "The government's job is to protect health and safety of our citizens."  He inconvenienced one nurse who, by her own writings, self-describes as a hero from the African Ebola hot zone.  Government hacks like CDC Director Tom Frieden would like to inconvenience all of us with his Big Gulp ban.  While Governor Christie grabs Ebola by the horns, Frieden has blown his time touring Kentucky, crying about the health disparities of those who use tobacco. Deadly Ebola had nothing on tobacco! 
Thus we see population health Governor Christie style or population health Democrat Care, leftist style. Tobacco has killed more people than Ebola (so far) claim people like Frieden, therefore it is more in need of stopping. Never mind that Ebola passed from person to person~the CDC now admits up to three feet away~and the ones infected die in agony with blood leaking out of all body openings as well as openings made by the virus!  Tobacco regulations are about CONTROL only, the panacea that if everyone lives healthy, like Big Gov says, there won't be any sick people to bust government budgets.
Those in charge of this public-population health rule over the rest of us in ObamaCare's new healthtocracy. Heroes like Hickox rule because they know best. Indeed she taunts Christie for not being a doctor and says medical decisions must be based on science. Junk science perhaps, like tobacco is worse than Ebola and climate change will kill us all unless we pay a UN carbon tax directly into the pockets of third world dictators.
The ObamaCare healthtocracy turns what once was individual medical care into a branch of public health. It reverses, "...the historic division between public health and private health care services", states an article in medicalnewstoday.com , drawn from an original article in 'The Lancet'.  In addition to providing "security of health" through enforced insurance, a secondary goal is to "improve population health". ObamaCare moves America away from the traditional "sick care system" which "largely focused on treating illness". Instead the focus is now on prevention, health promotion and public health. US doctor/patient health care and public health are working together for population health! 
Judging by how Ebola Angel Hickox is whining about her human rights, flaunting home quarantine in her home state of Maine and lawyering up, one might get the idea government and politicians shouldn't be making health care decisions. Or do we read between the lines and understand that politicians like Christie should stay out of health issues, but Democrat party hacks like the new Ebola Czar and CDC's Frieden should have free rein to save us from ourselves. Governor Christie has no rights to make decisions about the spread of a deadly African It all seems to depend on who is being controlled. It's in the national interest to control the peasants but not the elite.
Of course the emphasis is on eating what government tells us to, taking your preventive medicines courtesy of Big Pharma, exercising, and no smoking or drinking. Also there is no mention of Ebola, but that would get into sick care or something, wouldn't it?
In "9 Diseases the CDC Considers More Important Than Ebola" www.conservativeblog.org  notes that we can tell about government priorities by how budgets are spent. This article posits that the CDC is totally absorbed in such non-infectious diseases/conditions as smoking, drug and alcohol abuse, obesity, car accidents and safety, suicide, breast feeding, heart disease/stroke and cancer. Only one press release since 2009-2014 has been mentioned Ebola.The Conservative Blog article also notes that there have been three Ebola outbreaks in Africa since Tobacco-Is-Deadlier-Than-Ebola Tom Frieden took over the CDC. 
"Political crusades have become more important to the CDC," states the Conservative Blog. "Campaigns against smoking and obesity or promoting breast feeding, no doubt please various parts of the political left." Other pressing CDC issues are climate change, sexual violence and medical bills. 
With the CDC(and Prevention) intent on protecting US citizens from themselves rather than deadly African viruses, Governor Christie acted. The left of course is furious and that is hilarious since it is the left who would protect us from everything, especially things we find pleasurable. The message is clear, we shouldn't have the right to drink a Big Gulp but we should have the right to self-determine whether or not we can spread a murderous, viral heamorrhagic fever.
Does she support DemocratCare aka ObamaCare? Does she believe she deserves to be left alone by government because she is a nursing hero, or does she now believe everyone deserve the same freedoms she demands? Does she believe Big Gulps and tobacco are bigger threats than Ebola? Is she in favor of government trying to deny us these legal items in the name of public/population health? Is quarantine in a tent in New Jersey REALLY worse than doctors practicing government guidelines rather than individualized medicine? (Because of government guidelines I personally take risks with a deadly heart condition, in order to get treatment for pain that makes my life not worth living. I wouldn't have this crisis if it wasn't for the government's insistence on population health over private health.)
A final question for Hickox is, how smart was it for the CDC to ignore Ebola for so long? Don't go into a political diatribe about sequestration. There are always plenty of tax dollars to waste on programs to protect us from ourselves, to study things like why lesbians are fat!  I'd say the Ebola virus got lucky in the US. The various directors of public health ignore the virus while they bore down on private lives in the name of control.
As of today Nursing Ebola-Angel Hickox is still defying any quarantine requirement, according to a quick scroll of headlines. She has defied Maine state police and went for a bike ride. Perhaps she will go Trick or Treating tomorrow night.
Kaci Hickox is giving government control a viral middle finger. Let THAT be contagious in matters that don't endanger other people! What we eat, drink or smoke is not government business. Stopping the spread of contagious disease IS government business. If Hickox' "human rights" trump government's ability to protect citizens at large from a deadly virus, the rest of us have human rights not to be told how to live.
Wave the collective middle finger at the "frenzy of disorganization and fear" that is government-centered, public health for population health, aka ObamaCare. If Nurse Hickox can't be quarantined for the public good, we can't be told how to live for the public good. Hickox is saying SHOVE PREVENTION, even though she might spread a killer virus. We can certainly say SHOVE PREVENTION when it's none of government's business in the first place!
Like Hickox said, "we have to be very careful about letting policians make medical and public health decisions." Let that go viral!
