The recent developments on the Ebola crisis in West Africa have impacted the US in some troubling ways as there have been multiple potential cases reported over the last few weeks. In Dallas, Texas there have been multiple confirmed cases of Ebola and around the country there have been many who have been tested for the virus. The politics of Ebola have begun to take hold and you see many looking to take aim for who is to blame for the response by both the federal and state officials. Unfortunately, there is great deal of hypocrisy and theatrics in much of the blame game.  Nobody should be taken more to task than National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins, who leveled an unfounded attack on why the agency has been less than prepared on the response to the recent cases of Ebola here in the US. Last week, Dr. Collins told the Huffington Post that stagnant federal spending has led to a delay in having a vaccine ready to combat Ebola.

In an erratic defense of the cost versus effectiveness of USGBC's LEED green building certification system (see the USA Today investigative series), USGBC's Rick Fedrizzi shouts that this is a "social movement" and "we are right" at their annual Green Build conference in San Francisco. Taxpayers will say "you are wrong" as they learn more about the costs.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system

The Taxpayers Protection Alliance is launching an investigation into the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system. On January 17, 2013, TPA submitted three Freedom of Information Act requests trying to find out what collaboration took place between the General Services Administration and the U.S. Green Building Council when LEED was adopted. While more efficient and sustainable buildings are a laudable goal and can reduce energy consumption and energy costs for taxpayers, achieving that end through de-facto government monopolies is not the right approach.
