Jesse Jackson: Family of Eric Thomas Duncan Might Sue

Here is the thanks we get for allowing a foreigner to come into our country and establish a beachhead for Ebola while running up astronomical medical expenses and leaving taxpaying insured American citizens to pick up the tab:

The family of Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan are venting their outrage that the late Liberian may not have received the same quality of care leading up to his death Wednesday morning as the other patients treated in the U.S. for the dreaded virus.

‘No one has died of Ebola in the U.S. before. This is the first time,’ Duncan’s furious nephew Joe Weeks told ABC.

The hospital’s admitted mistake in not admitting Duncan immediately has left it wide open to a looting spree that could leave it bankrupt.

None other than the Reverend Jesse Jackson appeared in public with Duncan’s mother, raising the specter of legal action against the hospital as he condemned Duncan’s treatment.

‘He got sick and went to the hospital and was turned away, and that’s the turning point here,’ the Rev Jackson, a spokesman for the family, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

The family seem to be suggesting that further turning points would follow once Duncan finally received treatment.

When Duncan first went to Texas Presbyterian on September 25, he was sent home with a prescription for antibiotics and was never tested for Ebola, despite telling nurses that he had come from Ebola-stricken Liberia.

Unlike Ebola victims Dr Rick Sacra and NBC cameraman Ashoka Mukpo, Duncan did not receive a transfusion of blood from American Ebola survivor Dr Kent Brantly after he was finally diagnosed.

Weeks says doctors told the family ‘that the blood wasn’t a match.’

Or maybe America is just too racist to bend over quite far enough backward in providing free medical care to Duncan in return for his bringing Ebola into the USA, directly exposing dozens of Americans to the deadly disease, and setting a precedent for other infected Africans who might like to avail themselves of our free (for them) healthcare system.

Given a jury pool made up of the people who elect John Wiley Price, the looters are liable to collect many $millions.
