I remain curious. After campaigning for office, what did Rick ever do to advance family values? I know he didn’t vote against them, but did he ever lead or advance anything on family values, beyond the status quo?
Rick hustled for the elusive union favor well enough, but he did what for leading on anything? He campaigns on the Right and then it’s never heard of again, busily legislating to the benefit of unions with much more vigor.
Rick supported all the wedge issue National Right To Life legislation over the years from Partial Birth Abortion to Parental Notification for abortions, no abortions on military bases etc.
These issues were used to gin up money for NRL and other beltway establishment lobbying groups as well as to emotionalize the Pro-Life vote to vote for GOP Establishment candidates.
