Florida man vs Florida mosquito

"Rep. David Jolly Brings Florida Mosquitoes Onto House Floor to Discuss Zika" (video at the link)
"I rise with about 100 mosquitoes straight from Florida...mosquitoes capable of carrying the Zika virus," Jolly said, holding the container. "This is the reason for the urgency, this is the reason for the fear."
"It is our job to respond to the fear and the anxiety and the anger of a population concerned about a pending public health crisis, concerned about mosquitoes," he said. "You see, I brought these mosquitoes here today to convey that fear and that anxiety of millions of Americans and Floridians."

Somehow, I think the less politicians do usually, the better.

Zika is here because of all the illegals we have. they want the illegals and now they're going to fix the Zika.

Sure they are.

'We have nothing to fear but... the mosquito.'

One of FDR's less well known quotes.

IIRC the holdup in funding is that democrats wish to include grants to Planned Parenthood as a provider of contraception.

Dems never miss a chance to stick their snoots into the taxpayer's pocketbook. Either for themselves or for their allies.
