Earlier this week in a post titled: Why does the Republican Party hate America? I discussed some of the goofy tactics the GOP have taken since taking control of the House, and specifically the impending government shutdown this evening. Today, information has come out regarding the meeting last night between Harry Reid, President Obama and Speaker Boehner.
Apparently, the United States Federal Government may shutdown tonight because the GOP wishes to defund Planned Parenthood. That’s it. The government will no longer pay our soldiers, will not open any offices, will not function in any way shape or form… because they are waging a culture war on women of the United States.
They are pushing their right wing agenda so hard they are willing to spend whatever political capital they have on ensuring that many women who have no alternative will have no birth control, no reproductive health care and no support in the event they become pregnant… wanted or otherwise. Their narrow minded impression of what Planned Parenthood even is is staggering. To them it is nothing more than an abortion factory. To millions of women nationwide it is the difference between life and death.
These sons of bitches (my apologies to female dogs worldwide) think it is OK to treat women as chattel and as pawns in their little political culture war. If this goes through… my hope is that they will not spin this to the ignorant to somehow or another blame Democrats for standing firm for women’s rights.
All I can truly say is… John Boehner…. go fuck yourself!
