Wilson on Senate Democrats Blocking Zika Funding

September 7, 2016

 

Lexington, SC - Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement after Senate Democrats blocked votes on funding to address the Zika virus:

 

“Tonight, Democrats in the Senate again showed the American people that they would rather play politics than address the public health crisis caused by Zika. I am disappointed that they continue to block critical legislation that protects American families.

 

“House Republicans have acted quickly to address the threat of Zika. First, we urged President Obama to reprogram $589 million of unused funding from the Ebola crisis. In June, we passed the Zika Response Appropriations Act, key legislation that provides $1.1 billion for the prevention, research, and treatment of the virus. Our legislation is accountable the taxpayers and doesn’t increase government spending.

 

“As more and more cases of Zika are reported in South Carolina and across the country, Senate Democrats should finally take action and stop playing games with our public health.”
