Bloodsuckers want $1.1 billion in Zika funding

FOX: The Senate voted decisively on Tuesday in favor of a bipartisan $1.1 billion measure to combat the Zika virus this year and next, cutting back President Barack Obama’s request but offering significantly more money to fight Zika than would House GOP conservatives.

The 68-29 vote propelled the measure over a filibuster and sets the stage to add the Zika funding to an unrelated spending bill. It comes three months after Obama requested $1.9 billion to battle the virus, which can cause severe birth defects.

“We see the people of this country facing a public health threat,” said Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who supports the full Obama request. “Our response should be `Let’s deal with it the way that medical experts are saying we need to deal with it.”‘    more

  1. Swine Flu, Bird Flu, West Nile, Legionnaires,SARS, Mad Cow, Ebola, Mers, Global Warming, Ozone Layer, (That is just off the top of my head) and now Zika. The game plan doesn’t change, just the name of the hoax and the amount of money they throw at it.

  2. Pure, unadulterated graft.
    Obola, Jarrett, and others have invested in companies that pretend to make anti-viruses for Zika. It’s all bullshit and Rubio must be in on the scam, too.

    This is why nothing is ever done about corruption – they make every pol complicit by allowing them to cash in on the swag. Invest $5,000 get a return of $500,000! All it takes is a vote.
