Urgent situations need urgent and sizable funding, but how much is too much, or too little? I don't know enough on the situation to know how much is enough, and I am not taking political sides just want to know. Zika is in the US and new cases are rapidly increasing in number. Obama is asking $1.9 billion Senate last month approved $1.1 billion The House, in turn, approved $622 million They are also wanting to divert monies from Ebola Was Obama asking too much? Are the Republicans too cautious, too (gasp), conservative?
