Democrats played politics over Zika Virus funding last month by trying to tie it to the funding of Planned Parenthood. Now that the Zika Virus is in the U.S. they’re demanding action.

As Zika arrives in U.S., Dems who blocked funding over Planned Parenthood demand action
The first four cases of Zika transmitted directly by infected mosquitoes inside the United States were announced Friday by the Florida Department of Health. CNN reports:
“While no mosquitoes trapped tested positive for the Zika virus, the department believes these cases were likely transmitted through infected mosquitoes in this area,” according to a statement from the Florida Department of Health.
“As we anticipated, Zika is here,” Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Friday, adding that “all the evidence we have seen indicates that this is mosquito-borne transmission that occurred several weeks ago.”…
Now that the disease has arrived, Democrats are demanding the GOP hold an emergency session of congress to pass new funding.
House and Senate must return to Washington immediately to provide the Zika funding public health officials need to protect Americans.
