Well we all knew the party that just loves us would set the record right, no?
Senate Republicans voted to block legislation on Wednesday to overturn the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling and restore the legal right under Obamacare to cost-free contraceptive coverage for most female workers.The party that cant work out how to speak to women as equals, they even managed to find a woman to say that they should talk down to women.
The procedural vote was 56 for, and 43 against, falling short of the needed 60 to defeat a filibuster. Three Republicans voted with Democrats on the bill: Sens. Susan Collins (ME), Mark Kirk (IL) and Lisa Murkowski (AK). Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) switched his vote to no at the end to reserve his right to bring up the bill again.
GOP Rep: Talk ‘Down to a Woman’s Level’ as Women Do Not Understand MoneyThe party that just cant get to grip with women's biology
Republican men have been advised to bring policy “down to a woman’s level” because women do not really understand complicated things like pie charts or money
"once a child does exist in your womb, I'm not going to assume a right to kill it just because the child's host (some refer to them as mothers) doesn't want it.Of course they filibustered it because after all religion trumps women.
Is it any wonder that I loathe the Republican Party?
This continued mocking of our rights by the Republican party needs to be hammered from now on, in the long term it is a rock solid winner.
According to the CNN/ORC International poll, which was released Friday, 55% of Americans surveyed say the GOP doesn't understand women. That number rises to 59% among all women and 64% among women over 50.
According to the survey, the Democratic Party does not face the same concerns: 63% of all Americans and 62% of American women say that the Democrats understand women.Now there is some data to work with and improve. The poll is 5 months old and we should be hammering this difference home continually.
There is a war on women and it is lead by the Republican Party and backed up by religious fundamentalists.
