Jon Stewart, Blunt Contraception Amendment nothing to do with Contraceptionon March 2, 2012 at 2:00 pm
But you know, as silly as it seems, the Republicans are right about this. It not only allows insurance companies and employers to deny medical care for contraception, but for anything at all.
Did you know that an exam for breast cancer involves naked boobies! OMG, none of that here in JesusLand. Even worse, did you know that an exam for prostrate cancer involves someones fingers up someone else’s’ butt! OMFG! None of that here in StinkyFingerLand!
The saddest news on this is that 4 out of 5 FEMALE GOP US Senators voted for it. Only Olympia Snowe voted with the humans. And she is so out of touch with the New GOP that she just announced she was quitting.
The Blunt Amendment did lose by 3 votes in the Senate, but the GOP House is going to take it on and pass it in the next few days. Why? So they can use it in the coming election to show the Republican Base what sluts women are. About 45% of the women in America will agree and vote for it and them.
What is it that can make people blindly vote against their own self interest? Even in matters of life and death. Is it dark skinned presidents? Or what old annal retentive white men tell them to think? Or… Could that many women not be playing with a full deck?
