Summer is fast approaching, and as people spend more time outdoors they have to deal with mosquitoes. This year, the pesky insects are potentially more dangerous than ever before because of the Zika virus.
No one would argue that we need to be working on a vaccine to prevent the spread of the virus — no one, it seems, except President Barack Obama.
Last week, the Senate passed legislation to address prevention of the virus, but failed to pay for it. Legislatures instead approved a $1.1 billion “emergency” spending supplemental bill, according to The Daily Signal.
But the money won’t be going toward the emergency created by the Zika virus. Instead of using the money to work toward research for a vaccine and mosquito population control, Obama illegally gave the corrupt United Nations $500 million to the U.N.’s Green Climate Fund.
If that’s not bad enough, the U.N. Green Climate Fund is associated with the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, which recently accepted the “State of Palestine” as a signatory.
U.S. law forbids taxpayer money to fund any international organizations that recognize “Palestine” as a sovereign state, but yet that is exactly what Obama did.
Obama continues to do as he pleases and somehow managed to find a way to offend Israel in the process.
It should also be noted that the emergency funds used were not subject to the budget that was agreed upon last year, so Obama managed to increase our nation’s debt by another $1 billion.
Sen. James Lankford, who wrote the piece for the Signal, pointed out that the Department of Health and Human Services, Department of State, and International Assistance Programs have about $80 billion in funds that could be spent on dealing with any infectious disease emergency, including the Zika virus, but have not yet chosen to do so.
It is astonishing that we have a president who continues to prove he does not have the interests of the American people or our allies in mind.
It will be so good to see him leave Washington.
