I tell you, the Republicans are like bloody Chinese Water Torture. You know the deal… where the victim is completely immobilized, especially their head, and a drip is started dead-center in the middle of their forehead. Sure, a few dozen is no big deal. Might even feel good. But after several thousand, it makes the victim border on insanity.
The Republican Party is out to do everything they can to remove women’s abortion rights without having to overturn Roe v Wade – which they cannot do. That sense of powerlessness must be like Chinese water torture to them as they are now bordering insanity by carelessly influencing our laws with their own personal beliefs.
So, what best to do but attack the women directly. Spineless troglodytes.
The new bill Paul and Bachmann are supporting is called the Stop Abortion Funding in Multi-state Exchange Plans (SAFE) Act. The bill would block any multi-state health plan from offering coverage for elective abortions.
According to Paul and other Republican supporters, making sure federal funding does not go to providing comprehensive women’s health coverage is a necessity despite the fact that federal law already prohibits the use of taxpayer funding for abortion.
My response… do the best we can to tolerate the drip-drip-drip’s (literally) and vote them all out of office on November 5th this year.
(Me, thinking – I know, you smelled something burning, right? “Ron Paul and Bachmann…. Paulie, what the hell are you thinking? Please, return to ending the Fed – now that’s something of yours I will support.”)
