Is there nothing the GOP won't Block!

Is there anything of worth that the House GOP won’t block? Immigration reform (DREAM Act), health care improvements, employment opportunities in education and other public sector jobs, campaign finance reform, help for Hurricane Sandy victims, civil rights, gay rights, women’s rights…

Hold everything, let’s stop at women’s rights.



Via Steve Benen at The Maddow Blog:




For the first time since 1994, the Violence Against Women Act is no more. Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), the Democratic point person on VAWA, said in a statement:


Snip:

And the War on Women (scroll) continues.http://thepoliticalcarnival.net/tag/war-on-women/ Be proud, GOP. And you might want to revisit, even for a moment, why your party is 1) imploding 2) losing elections.


We have our jobs cut out for us over the next four years. Let's Crush the GOP!

2. K&R!

that they'd vote against the Violence Against Women act is particularly disturbing. Not surprising, just disturbing.

5. 2 years, not 4.

2014 is way more important. We have to take back as many governorships and state houses as possible. As horrible and loud as GOP congressional leaders are, the real damage is being done at the state level. That's where we should focus.
