Seeing Gov. Rick Scott, Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen suddenly concerned about Zika makes me sick to my stomach. If they hadn’t spent eight years denying every single thing President Obama requested, perhaps they would have forged relationships that would have funded the $1.9 billion that he asked for months ago to address this crisis.
Instead, recently I got an email from Ros-Lehtinen about a months-old ransom for hostages non-issue clearly sent to divert attention from her disastrous presidential candidate. I am really worried about my pregnant friends. Shame on them all.
