Republicans from states at greatest risk, such as Florida, Texas, Louisiana and Georgia, have been slow to endorse Obama's more than 2-month-old request for $1.9 billion to battle the virus, which causes grave birth defects.

Zika won't get anyone elected, so the politicians don't fucking care. Even in conservative states that are the most at risk, the tradeoff between funding prevention/protection vs. the inevitable results isn't a matter of concern because FACE IT, they won't be the ones in power when the shit really hits the fan.
So a decade from now, when all these incapable youngsters are living off medicaid, somehow it will STILL be Obama's fault. Even though it wasn't.
