Are DummycRATs going to End Zika Funding Filibuster

U.S. Funding for Fighting Zika Virus Is Nearly Spent, C.D.C. Says.


Flashback: The Hill: Senate Democrats block Zika agreement ahead of recess.

Senate Democrats on Tuesday blocked a deal providing funding for the fight against the Zika virus, virtually guaranteeing that Congress won’t get legislation to President Obama’s desk this month.

 

In a 52-48 vote, the Senate fell eight votes short of moving past a procedural hurdle against the House-Senate conference report on a military and veterans spending bill, which includes $1.1 billion to fund the Zika virus research.

 

Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) broke with his party and backed moving forward with the deal. GOP Sens. James Lankford (R-Okla.), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) voted against the Zika deal. McConnell’s “no” vote allows him to bring the measure back up for another vote.

 

The vote leaves the current fight over the Zika virus at a standstill with days left before the July 4th recess.

 

 

Seems like liberals WANT more Zika infections. Probably to create more work for Planned Parenthood.

Democrats opposed the bill, which they complained was negotiated between Senate and House Republicans with little input from them and was loaded with "poison pill" riders that cut health programs, restricted funding for birth control services from Planned Parenthood, weakened clean water laws and blocked a ban on displaying the Confederate flag at U.S. military cemeteries.

 

 

Dumbass republican shills.

Reducing the number of pinheads born to women infected with Zika by drastically reducing the number of mosquitoes is a no-brainer. The fewer the microcephalic children are born, the less it will cost to care for them.They need to pass a specific bill with no riders immediately.
