GOP Dissed Dana Reeve
Freakin' heartless cowards!

http://www.deadlinehollywooddaily.com/gop-dissed-reeve /

On the sad occasion of Danas death, heres the column I wrote right after her husband died in 2004: Wheres Their Sense of Decency? I learned that, just a day after the actors passing, one or more Republican senators put a surprise hold on the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Act. The uncontroversial legislation had been expected to sail through committee, and then the Senate, as easily as the House where it passed 418 to zero. This was beyond cruel; it was like opposing Mom and apple pie. And Congressional sources confirmed to me that the hold on the legislation was placed from the Republican side of the aisle.

UPDATE: Its still nowhere.

4. "It's safe, boys! Chris isn't on our case any more. He's dead!"
That's basically what the bastids said to each other.

6. If the Democrats propose, we must oppose.
That seems to be the political mantra of the Republican Syndicate.

7. not necessarily uncontroversial
It's hard to tell from the bill, but it looks like this bill would expand animal testing, which many people believe is not only cruel but detrimental to medicine by delaying real research.
