    Looks like there are idiots blocking it on both sides, but the Democrats seem to be more willing to negotiate about the sticking points than the Republicans. So much for them being pro life...

    Democrats could give a little just as much as the Republicans can. Guess the Democrats don't care about healthy children.

    Yes they could, but the Republicans are not willing to respond by giving anything and that has been the pattern for the last 8 years.

    Oh, yeah, did not see the latest in continuing drama about the Zika bill.
    (TY for notice)

    Wonderful, while Washington bickers over insignificant incidental items, Zika will spread. :mad:

    It would be nice if just once our politicians would vote on a bill without attaching unrelated amendments.

    Why is it when there are Banks to be resQed Congress is Johnny on the spot, falling all over themselves to get it done, but when Citizen lives are at stake it's partisan bickering.

    Unless the Republicans want it? (Obamacare = a lot of Romneycare, apparently)... And TYT claims Obama caved on a big tax cut.

    Hussein has spent the greater majority of his time bashing Republicans, his obsession with allegedly spending money on illegal immigrants, foreign interests and anything other than helping the USA, prevents the medical community from fighting Zika.

    Perhaps he's planning on apologizing to the insects that carry the disease... :eek:

    Bird flu, Mad Cow, SARS, Ebola, and now Zika. More government-media generated BS to keep the sheeple passive and compliant.

    I get the feeling you'ed be one of the first to cry out about how the gov failed us if something bad did break out.


    Edit: Honest question, do you think it's just a conspiracy, fake virus, or nothing to actually worry about for pregnant women or people considering having a baby? What exactly is the issue here regarding zika?

    If the Republicans believed in new strains of the seasonal flu they would have to believe in evolution...

    It would help if they, you know, actually read the bills.

    I almost want to be able to introduce a bill. I would make it 10,000 pages of random nothingness and then put in my special wants and desires.
