Fund Zika fight

Republicans in Congress hate abortion providers. We get that. They also hate Planned Parenthood. We get that, too. But why do they hate the people of South Florida?

Republicans claim to love all Americans, yet they are so obsessed with Planned Parenthood that they failed to fund the Zika fight because they wanted to defund Planned parenthood as part of the same bill. Then they went out on recess!

They don’t need a recess — this is the biggest do-nothing Congress in history. And while they were getting some rest, the Zika virus got established in Miami.

The Republican’s hatred of Planned Parenthood trumped the health and safety of Americans in Florida. I guess their new motto is: Hate trumps love.
