Obama’s Former Ebola Czar Is Now Concerned About Too Much Government

A month after leaving his post as President Obama’s Ebola czar, longtime Democratic operative Ron Klain has penned a column warning that federal regulations will create roadblocks in several emerging technology industries.

Klain, who the White House brought on in October to manage the Ebola crisis, wrote in a column at Tech Crunch on Sunday that venture capitalists can expect to face more federal red-tape over the final 20 months of Obama’s term.

“Recent developments in Washington, especially the Obama administration’s greater desire to flex its regulatory muscles in several key areas, mean that some booming startups will have to navigate new governmental hurdles in Washington, D.C,” Klain wrote.
