Open thread for night owls: Emergency funding to combat Zika about to run dry

As Donald Trump proposes gargantuan cuts to a variety of government programs, the CDC faces another threat: Emergency funding requested by the last administration to combat the spread of the Zika virus in the United States is about to run dry.

Many previous health crises have been responded to with similar one-time bullets of funding, Wroblewski said. But unlike the 2014 Ebola outbreak or the 2009 swine flu epidemic, which came and went, Zika is likely to persist. Like its mosquito-borne cousins dengue and West Nile Virus, Zika may pop up every year.

“Zika is not something we can respond to this year and then move onto the next crisis,” she said. “It’s going to be something we pay attention to every mosquito season — and in travelers in the off season. We need more of a sustained response.”

It’s unclear whether the CDC will have much wiggle room in their budget in the coming year. The budget blueprint presented by President Donald Trump’s Office of Management and Budget in March proposed a 17.9 percent cut to the Department of Health and Human Services, which CDC falls under. The OMB did not return requests for comment.

There have been over 40,000 reported cases of the disease, which can cause catastrophic neurological defects and death in developing fetuses, in the United States and US territories since 2015. Mosquitos carrying the virus have now been identified in Florida and Texas.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

At Daily Kos on this date in 2009Two-thirds of cable's April sequester coverage was on potential flight delays:

As you might expect, MSNBC was the channel most likely to cover things other than the potential for flight delays, but overall, the delays have gotten a disproportionate amount of coverage. Predictably, the coverage of the flight delays has caused Republicans to once again care about the sequester, and by care about the sequester I don't mean caring about ending the sequester, I mean caring about blaming big bad Barry O'Bummer for it.

A perfect example: Yesterday, House Appropriations Chairman Mike Rogers slammed FAA for allegedly failing to warn Congress that the sequester might impact their operations. The implication: If Republicans had only known about the impacts of the sequester, they would have avoided it—instead, they were kept in the dark by the tyrannically incompetent (oxymoron intended) Obama administration. The only problem: The FAA did warn us what would happen if the sequester moved forward, and Republicans did nothing to stop it, rejecting every offer the president put forward, even when he volunteered to commit political suicide.

Done In In Berlin
As Trump's special advisor, Ivanka should show some aptitude, But at a women's conference in Berlin she ran out of latitude. When she characterized her father As a woman "empowerer," The German crowd just hissed and booed.

On MSNBC, Ex-GOP Staffer Details How The Purpose Of Voter ID Laws Is To "Take People's Constitutional Rights Away"

From the April 7 edition of MSNBC's All In with Chris Hayes:

TODD ALLBAUGH: I've been a Republican for a long time. It was at that moment, Chris, in that room in the senate Republican caucus when I heard people, a Party I had fought for for over 30 years of my life, actually giddy and happy and talking about how we can take people's Constitutional rights away, or at least impede them, in order to hang onto power.

[...]

Now, you have a group of people in the state legislature, particularly in the senate Republican caucus, who want to impede peoples' voting rights. That's the point where I said "I can't do it anymore." I can't be a Republican, I can't keep going to caucuses because this Party no longer represents me and what I believe in. 

[...]

Republicans used to fight for voting rights, and here they were taking them away. So, yes, the point is, this was a poignant point in my life. I remember it clearly and certainly the point in that room that day was how do we do this quickly because there was a lot of recalls going on in Wisconsin at that time. How do we do it quickly so that we can make sure we hang onto power in the future.
