Congressman Matt Salmon is seeking to block research that could slow the spread of the Zika virus in the United States. Why would anyone do something so irresponsible?
1.9 billion dollars is what the medical doctors leading the fight against Zika say they need to do an adequate job. 0.62 billion dollars is what Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives have voted to provide.
KNXV has never apologized for spreading false rumors about plagues brought into the USA by illegal immigrants. The TV station did, however, report late last year on the destruction of hundreds of tamales that were discovered in the luggage of a passenger arriving at LAX airport from Mexico, and warned that tamales “can carry animal diseases”.
