Are we really supposed to believe that Paul Ryan can’t find the money to fight the Zika virus, but can find the money to keep funding wasteful military projects, such as the F-35, a military airplane that has cost taxpayers $1.58 TRILLION, but still doesn’t work?
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.
As this list shows, corruption is somewhat bipartisan, in case of the influence of United Technologies Corporation. In the current election cycle, however, the United Technologies PAC is giving two thirds of its money to Republican candidates, and just one third of its money to Democratic candidates.
