 Zika presents a clear and present danger to the US, both medically and economically. Think not? Remember the economic impact of SARS a little more than a decade ago? Those empty planes and hotels?

Then there are the costs associated with the births. And the neurological consequences (which seem to include GBS).

Will there definitely be an outbreak? No. But the setting for there to be is definitely there.

And the economic hit? You can't just write it off. Hopefully, it will be a lot better than the worst case scenario.
