So far New York City has tested 3,400 plus pregnant women. Forty-nine of them have tested positive. And very, very sadly, one baby was born with microcephaly due to Zika. A reminder of just how dangerous this disease can be today. Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, let's be clear, these are the two individuals who can address the Zika crisis in this country.
President Obama has made clear he treats it as a priority. He's doing all he can within his executive powers. It's time for speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McConnell to step up, get the congress back so it will act. This is a crisis that effects all of their members, states all over the country, and this is not a red state crisis or a blue state crisis this affects all of us.
Those two leaders can step up and make the difference right now.
