Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, is my HERO !

In the last 2 weeks Nancy Pelosi and the House of Representatives Democrats have passed a number of bills detailed below:

HR 8373 - Right to Contraception Act - this bill that protects an individual's ability to access contraceptives, engage in contraception, and protects a health care provider's ability to provide contraceptives, contraception, and information related to contraception.

HR 8404 - Respect for Marriage Act - this bill protects same-sex and interracial marriages.

HR 8296 - Women's Health Protection Act of 2022 - Prohibits federal, state, and local governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, abortion services

HR 8297 - Ensuring Access to Abortion Act of 2022 - this bill that prohibits anyone acting under state law from interfering with a person's ability to access out-of-state abortion services.

HR 6538 - Active Shooter Alert Act of 2022 - this bill that requires a designated officer of the Department of Justice act as the national coordinator of an Active Shooter Alert Communications Network regarding an emergency involving an active shooter.

Of course, the grand majority of House Republicans voted NO to these bills (including Ben Cline voting NO) and their extreme positions opposing common sense legislation (and supported by a large majority of Americans) are now on record. Unfortunately, these bills will likely not advance in the Senate.

Pointing at the Republicans, Nancy Pelosi also said the following:

“Let us be clear: Those that oppose this legislation are only revealing their dark desire to punish and control America’s most intimate and personal decisions. . . .What is this about? They are against birth control, but they are for controlling women. This is about servitude.”

“I ask those who oppose contraception, again, do you even know what’s going on in your own families? Why don’t you ask? Do we need a session of the birds and bees to talk about why this is important?”

Don’t mess with Nancy !

Thanks to the Jennifer Rubin opinion piece in the Washington Post for the quotes and supporting information.

We really weren't better off...

“Are you better off now than you were four years ago?” challenged Representative Elise Stefanik at a news gaggle a few weeks back.

No such thing as a protest vote

Think back 24 years ago - to November.  It’s the 2000 election and Al Gore and W. Bush are locked in a tight race.
