House Republicans Scuttle Violence Against Women Act

THE REPUBLICAN war on women keeps on giving.

From Huffington Post:

Despite a late-stage intervention by Vice President Joe Biden, House Republican leaders failed to advance the Senate’s 2012 reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, an embattled bill that would have extended domestic violence protections to 30 million LGBT individuals, undocumented immigrants and Native American women.

“The House leadership would not bring it up, just like they wouldn’t bring up funding for Sandy [hurricane damage] last night,” said Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), a key backer of the Senate version of the bill, in an interview with HuffPost. “I think they are still so kowtowing to the extreme on the right that they’re not even listening to the moderates, and particularly the women, in their caucus who are saying they support this.”

White straight women are the only broads worth protecting.

LGBT, undocumented and Native Americans just aren’t in their binder of women.

    And the war on women continues by the “terrorist” GOP.
