Republicans too busy redefining rape to worry about something as small as jobs

    Is the GOP redefining rape?
    A proposed new bill would bar federal funding for abortion except in cases of "forcible rape." What does that mean?

    Is the GOP redefining rape? - The Week

    This legislation would exclude adult victims of incest, women who were raped while drugged or unconscious, and survivors of statutory rape. In fact, "about 70 percent of rapes wouldn't fall under the 'forcible' designation," so there is no way to interpret this other than as a cruel attempt to deny victims care by denying that many of them were raped at all.
    "John Boehner's push to redefine rape"

    Republican abortion bill seeks to redefine rape

    WASHINGTON - A Republican bill seeking to permanently cut off federal funding for abortions has angered women's groups that say it alters the definition of rape, permitting coverage for the procedure only in cases in which the rape is considered "forcible."

    The bill, called the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortions Act, would make permanent several provisions that have been law for years but require annual renewal by Congress. It is a top priority of Republican leaders who took control of the House after the November elections.

    JOBS JOBS JOBS!!!! Republicans SCREAMED leading up to the election.

    What is Obama doing about "JOBS JOBS JOBS"???? Wildly waving hands as if wrists were broken while running in large circles.

    So far, the Republican leadership has worked to keep millions from getting health care. They held the unemployed hostage as a bargaining chip to push through tax cuts for "millionaires and billionaires".

    And now, they are redefining rape to end many women's protections against forced pregnancy.

    THIS IS YOUR RIGHT WING LEADERSHIP!

    Once again, I ask, "Whatever happened to JOBS JOBS JOBS????

    Doesn't the right hold their leadership accountable? Or they just hate Obama so much, the right wing leadership knows they can violate average Americans in any way they want and have total immunity? Sure glad it isn't about race.

    I love your post. It's great.

    What is especially funny is how every success that Obama has accomplished, Republicans first tried to stop then tried to take credit for it. It's hilarious.

    The following is a list of 114 Republican Lawmakers who voted against Obama's bill and then publicly took credit for it. Truly hilarious.

    Are you sure that the Democrats aren't the ones re-defining it since they are fighting to have abortion covered?

    in only psycho rdean world can the legislature pursue only one item...you will notice though that while dems pursued many non job bills, he never once complained about that, despite the fact dems ran on a jobs based platform

    its called intellectual dishonesty and the OP is false

    Truly hilarious. When a new president enters office, his first budget goes into effect 8 months after he was sworn it. It's always worked that way. The first 8 months of any new president relies on the budget of the previous president.

    That means that on the very first day of the first Bush budget, unemployment was 4.7%.

    Flash forward 8 LOOOONG years and on the very first day of President Obama's first budget, the unemployment rate was 10.1%.

    Graph: Unemployment rate (seasonally adjusted)

    The current unemployment is 9.3% with employment being a "lagging indicator".

    Of course, it doesn't help that from 2001 to 2008, Republicans moved millions of jobs to China.

    The RNC had abortion covered in their employee insurance policy.
