"That forced birth agenda includes codifying the long-standing Hyde Amendment that prevents federal funding for abortion and “funding for any insurance plan that includes abortion on demand.” That’s private health insurance coverage they’re talking about. They’ll also vote on a cruel “born-alive” bill that would require medical personnel provide care to infants born with conditions that will keep them from surviving outside the womb for any amount of time, torturing the babies in their only minutes on Earth with futile medical interventions and preventing parents from having the experience of being with their newborn for whatever time they’ll live. It’s just sick."
"They do have some energy-related bills, mostly attempting to tie President Joe Biden’s hands if we’re faced with another oil shortage with a bill that “prohibits non-emergency drawdowns of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve without a plan to increase energy production on federal lands."

The GOP is now nothing more than a pack of lying a$$holes.
@Betty Unsure. I was not a GOP-watcher until a few years ago. I also am aware of @rainmanjr's reply below.
@anglophone Back before the 1980's it was a lot easier to hide the corruption. Politics has been corrupt and government abuse has been going on for a long long time. Kennedy was against the Vietnam war and Lyndon B. Johnson was for it because it profited big business.
So, in my opinion the corruption goes even further back.
@Betty Precisely. It was a huge theft and abuse of power but Obama, nor his AG, even talked about prosecuting anyone for it. Nor did they prosecute anyone for lies which took us to war (killing over 150,000 very innocent humans). I think that was a massive failing. Then he didn't tell us about the Russian connections to 45 for fear of affecting the vote! SMH
@Betty They are servants of their public, and their desire, but few since Francis Of Assisi are only a servant. I don't hold them to higher levels of human ethics than others but the tide of human change is an incremental thing. It's harder for politicians because of their bubbles and that's why the smart ones do polling. Very detailed polling.
Haven't they always been?
