Government too big or too little? Make up your mind!

Republicans seem to be at the forefront in complaining about "big government".  Then they turn around and complain about the Federal government not doing enough.

The attack ads and phone calls from Republicans are overwhelming about the overreach of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare),  Among their statements are the Federal government should not be between you and your doctor.

Now Republicans in Congress are complaining that the Federal government is not doing enough about ebola.  In other words, the Federal government should get between ebola patients and their doctors.
