Really, let’s just admit it: Our government is being run by grifters. Via Washington Examiner. The White House doesn’t seem to know how much money it has on hand to battle the growing threat of the mosquito-transmitted Zika virus, even as it continues to demand $1.9 billion in new spending.

But administration officials have been unable to answer how much of that money is left. The White House, the Centers for Disease Control and the Office of Management and Budget were all unable to provide an exact number or even an estimate, despite repeated requests. Not...
