Why mention that it didn’t get two thirds...unless you’re anticipating Osama’s veto?
WHY are they focusing on this stuff?
They are so stooopid.
Actually, in a philisophical sense and with Biblical history in mind, senseless killing of innocents is the LAST thing we should toy with, we who need God’s help with the state of our country. It just doesn’t invite grace.
One thing to always remember. There is no such thing as a pro-life democrat. You can’t be both. To say otherwise is a lie. Not just a lie, a damn lie.
I understand the intent of the bill, but unless you outlaw abortion, how would you enforce this?
I almost think that Bone-Er did this intentionally so as not to incur the wrath of Dear Leader, the Demo-Rats and their sycophant Lame Stream Media in accusing them of waging a "War on Women."
Can somebody edumicate me...why isn’t a simple majority sufficient?
This is ridiculous.
The left keeps saying the unborn are not people. Gender of a blob of tissue is a moot discussion according to them. You aren’t getting rid of any “girls” if you’re a lefty. It makes no sense to talk in terms reserved for people, and the left has to be called on this. Either they are people and you’re admitting you’re murdering them before they’re born, or they aren’t people and stop trying to make an issue out of gender because they aren’t people.
They cannot have it both ways without being the biggest hypocrites in the world, as well as destroying their own arguments in the process.
Zero’s position on this is so outrageous as to defy credulity. Maybe he wants to lose the election. It just disgusts me. These days I often wonder where I live. Used to be evil was condemned; now it’s celebrated by the abortionists and those in their camp.
Maybe God will have mercy on their souls. I despise them, but I’m preaching to the choir. It’s all just so sad what has happened to our country.
Talk about a war on women! This BS takes the cake.
What’s a good country, stressing good, to move to?
There's goes "tea party" Amash again, as well as his pal Ron Paul (no doubt Paulbots will tell us Paul has a really good "constitutional" reason for voting that way and we "hate the Constitution" if we don't agree with it). I see Mrs. Connie Mack IV (Mary Bono Mack) was a NAY. She's always been a squish compared to Sonny but she's really become a full fledged RINO in recent years (the cap n' trade vote she cast was even worse). I dread the thought of her "conservative" hubby getting a promotion to the U.S. Senate. Bob Dold in Illinois replaced Kirk and has official morphed into Mark Kirk Jr. Sad. We should have known better, but the guy had potential to actually be the "independent" he claimed to be, but probably the same combine forces that control Kirk are controlling him. I remember some freeper was all excited when Dold won and said he read in National Review that Dold was a "staunch conservative". I told him the Review writer must be smoking something illegal because even Dold wouldn't use the word "conservative" and himself in the same sentence. The problem is that IL-10 politicians use the phrase "middle of the road" as codeword for "I will do Planned Parenthood's bidding 100% of the time". Don't know enough about Hanna and Hayworth. Any chance they're in districts where we could dump them in favor of real Republicans?
If the Ku Klux Klan offered a bounty (a paid-for abortion plus a cash payment for the mother) for any black children aborted, should I assume the folks who voted against this ban would be reluctant to interfere legislatively?
If the American Nazi Party offered a similar bounty for abortions of unborn females, would the legislators against this bill still be okay with sex-selective abortions?
Actually, so does Boehner as he's the one (and his "leaders") made the 2/3 vote necessary - this is NOT a spending nor taxing bill, so why the 2/3 vote if not to give GOP votes cover?
