They are still trying in congress to pass an additional billion dollars to fight the Zika virus down south. How come no one in congress is concerned about west Nile virus, also caused by mosquitoes?
It’s obvious to me, there are too many electoral votes up for grabs down south and money buys votes. In 2012 west Nile killed 286 people in the U.S., far greater than the Zika virus has done. What about an extra 1.5 billion for the fight to eliminate drug abuse in America, it kills 129 children each day.
I guess a swing state like Florida is more important......
