Republicans want a fucking around abortion ban binge without the finding out abortion ban hangover

Like a pervert trying to slip his dick into an unsuspecting woman’s hand, Grand Old Perverts keep trying to sneak anti-abortion riders into bills.

In one government funding bill after another, Republicans are incorporating unrelated policy provisions, known as riders, to restrict women’s reproductive rights. Democrats say the proposals will never become law.

Why are the people who repeatedly introduced and voted on bills to ban abortion now sneaking items into bills that would block the FDA from allowing certified pharmacies to dispense mifepristone; ban paid leave and travel for members of the military and their family who need reproductive health care or stop D.C. from preventing employer discrimination based on an employees’ reproductive decisions?

Well yes, they are wretched assholes. But they’re now they’re wretched assholes who are worried that being a wretched asshole will end their political sinecures.

Republicans for years held stand-alone votes in the House on bills to restrict abortion. Now, some in the party — particularly the nearly 20 Republicans running for reelection in swing districts — are hesitant, if not outright opposed, to roll calls on abortion proposals.

The right made outlawing abortion one of its signature issues more than half a century ago. But they don’t want to vote about it right now. This will displease the base, and expose them to attacks from Republicans who want to replace them. But this cunning plan also ensures they will whine when Democrats mention the fact that Republicans want to ban abortion.

That may explain why Republicans aren’t exactly flocking to co-sponsor Chris Smith’s (R-NJ) Yay! Dobbs Day! resolution.

In the meantime, they can blame Democrats for their sudden disinterest in bills that would ban abortion.

They say such bills will never see the light of day as long as Democrats control the Senate.

That’s reflex, not strategy. There was a time when Republican voters would accept the excuse that this is the very first time since Roe v. Wade was decided that Democrats control the Senate. Or that a Democrat-controlled Senate stops Republicans from voting to ban abortion.

But the leaders of the party of bigotry taught their voters to value obnoxious performance over fact-based policy. It taught them that the only response anything they don’t like is to scream, wave guns and if necessary, shoot people. The base doesn’t want riders hidden in bills. It might be enough for some big money donors, but the donees have to stay in office to keep their snouts in the trough.

People who post off-topic comments paid extra for an autographed copy of Josh Hawley’s Manhood.
