    In the end it's always about getting our money.  But marginalizing women makes the male idiots on the right happy and easier to control.

    Yeah, I'm pitchfork mad like that.

      new proposals. Part of the structure Pitt and the Rs insist upon is that while men get full and unqualified benefits, women must pay the same for less, and they view it as their job to make sure that women cannot with their own money either buy the services they don't need but object to women having.

      Now the Pitt premise is that any plan which includes reproductive rights, and any tax return treating them as medical deductions, is also an improper use of what would be federal taxes, so, of course, and deductibility in whole is the plan, thus encouraging any employer to exclude maternity care or this part of it or lose the entire deduction, and the individual returns listing medical deductions may not list this one. All for the purpose of making sure women CANNOT exercise autonomy on the matter of babies, who of course get no special care once delivered. Men would be screaming if there were any procedure denied them which had to do with being male, or any procedure at all, actually. It's a classical double standard in which men are not interested unless and until child support is required to be paid.
