    Florida’s Lonely Fight Against Zika

    House and Senate Republicans crafted a $1.1 billion plan that also limited funding for Planned Parenthood and eased pesticide regulations. Senate Democrats balked.

    House and Senate Republicans are howling mad. Trying to score points in the face of an epidemic? Be against abortion but don’t mind killing or crippling foetuses and babies ? Idiots, scum.

    Don’t mind perhaps crippling the Florida economy. Just how many young foreign tourists used to visit Florida every winter—and just how of them will be heading somewhere else this winter? Heck how many young tourists from the northern USA will be visiting Florida this year?

    Inward migration of young professionals? Not if a couple are thinking of having children.
