BLISTERING RESPONSE FROM NURSES' UNION TO WHITE HOUSE. They've been warning for a month to better prepare hospitals for Ebola.

ROSEANN DEMORO: "The status quo that's in place is indefensible. This is one of the most lucrative industries in the United States. This is a billion dollar industry. We have a pharmaceutical industry that's essentially sacrificing cures for profits. In the last 5 years they've made $600 billion in profits and they didn't work on a cure for Ebola because it wasn't profitable enough? The priorities of our country are outrageous. There is something fundamentally wrong with the direction of health care in this country. Not one more nurse should be sacrificed at this altar of profit. The bipartisan collusion of basically not taking care of this country and it's infrastructure for health care is unconscionable. Both parties are responsible."
