Congress must vote on Zika funding to fight ‘national emergency’: Joe Biden

News Hour:

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday called on the Republican-led Congress to allow a vote on funding to combat the Zika virus, calling the efforts to fight it a “national emergency.”

Biden called for an up-or-down vote speaking alongside fellow Democrats at the Capitol. U.S. lawmakers are mired in a political logjam over $1.1 billion in funding to address Zika as the Senate prepares to possibly consider legislation as soon as next week,reports Reuters.
