Politicians around the country are furious that congress has not appropriated an extra 1.2 billion dollars for the protection from the zika virus. The CDC has an 8 billion dollar budget, Health and Human Services has a budget of 80 billion. Who is going to get their dirty hands on this money?
There have been 22 cases in the U.S. There are 120 new cases of aids each day in the U.S., yet there is no outrage for the lack of funding. The zika topic is what’s hot now and if they can score political points but put us further in debt, they'll do it.
Let’s all see if this is a serious problem on January the 15th.
