American politics are not my strong point, and i've lost the thread of this thread, but if its about a womans right to abort a baby simply as a form of contraception, surely that's not a good thing to do?
President Barack Obama received a loud applause in his State of the Union address when he spoke up in support of pay equity. McMorris Rodgers admits that by opposing Democratic plans to address the inequity for women without putting out their own plan, the GOP faces turning off women.
"Republicans need to recognize that, to be part of solution, in general bringing these work place laws into 21st century," McMorris Rodgers said.
Ellmers agreed, adding that "women across this country believe there's a discrepancy in equal pay for women so this is something we have to be fighting for."
At CPAC over the weekend, Republican strategist Kate Obenshain offered her party some reasonable advice about addressing the gender gap between the major parties.
“We cannot have any stupid comments this year. No stupid comments,” she said. “Please think before you make pithy, obnoxious comments.”
New Hampshire state Rep. Kyle Tasker (R) went on a public Facebook forum Monday and posted a sexually explicit joke about women who have been the victims of domestic abuse.
The discussion on the Facebook page of the Greater Nashua Tea Party arose over the New Hampshire GOP’s refusal to stand by another state lawmaker, Rep. Mark Warden (R), who has come under scrutiny in recent days for saying, “Some people could make the argument that a lot of people like being in abusive relationships.”
Tasker defended Warden, and as the online discussion continued, he proceeded to publish a sexually explicit graphic with a joke about “battered women.” I’m not comfortable republishing his message here, but the GOP state lawmaker was apparently trying to make a joke about abusive victims and oral sex.
This is what happens when the govt forces us to carry things we don't always need.
