DEMOCRATS TO FLORIDA: DROP DEAD. As Zika Spreads in US, Obama Holds Back on Available Funding.

As mosquitoes seem to be spreading Zika inside the United States, the Obama administration has been sitting on some of the resources intended to fight the virus.

The administration has spent or obligated less than half of the $589 million that it has available, Congressional Quarterly reported, citing numbers from the Office of Management and Budget. In April, the administration reallocated money originally designated to fight Ebola.

Despite its failure to spend the money it has available, the White House continues to demand Congress approve $1.9 billion to fight Zika. Senate Democrats, meanwhile, are filibustering a bill that would provide $1.1 billion in funding.

Shameful.
