Republicans: They’re comedy gold

Posted on March 8, 2012


And now a selection from the “Things Republicans did today” report:

  1. Rick Santorum proposed that all single mothers applying for unemployment or Welfare must submit to a government-issued paternity test.
  2. Kansas  Republicans proposed a resolution that all women seeking an abortion, for any reason, must pay a supplemental tax on not only the procedure, but all the medical supplies and equipment used.
  3. Conducted a public censure of a pregnant 8th grader in New Mexico and then outed her in front of all her fellow students and employees and forced her to leave the school.
  4. Passed a resolution in Delaware that calls on Congress and other states to pass laws giving eggs and sperm “full personhood” rights.
  5. U.S. House Republicans proposed a resolution that would make it illegal for anyone but a parent to accompany a young woman across state lines to seek an abortion — even in cases where the only parent is her father and he is the one who got her pregnant.

I’m serious, people. I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.
