Instead of focusing on jobs, he launched into another confusing attack on the left’s latest bizarre obsession. Just think about that. The percentage of Americans in the workforce is at an almost four-decade low, and Democrats chose to ignore serious job-creation ideas so they could blow a few kisses to their powerful pals on the left.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell accused President Obama and Democrats of a “never-ending political road show” in regards to the push for equal pay.

This bill is prejudiced. It’s prejudiced against women. A 14-year-old boy can go to the truck stop and buy all the condoms he wants. He can control his destiny. This bill takes the ability to control their destiny away from women. But that’s what we do in the Republican Party these days.

As Republican-controlled states one by one legislate abortion access out of existence, a new map of the United States is essentially starting to take focus: one where abortion is legal and accessible, and another where huge swaths of this country have no access to what on paper are their reproductive rights. When people talk the whole war on women thing, it is not a Beltway construct. It is the lived experience of Republican governance in the states right now.

He will wholly be bad for Texas, bad for the Republican Party. We have two choices and I will categorically tell you I’m not voting for Dan Patrick either in the primary or the general election. I’ll vote Libertarian in November if I have to.
Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson said that he is still making up his mind about whether to endorse Lt. Governor David Dewhurst for reelection, but vowed not to support state Senator Dan Patrick on Tuesday.

There isn’t a Republican Party. I wish there were, I wish there was a Republican Party. I wish there was one person we could sit across the table from, make a deal, make a compromise and know when you got up from that table it was done.

All you had to do was look at the response to the State of the Union, what were there, three or four? I’m not being facetious.

You can tell how little regard Republican lawmakers have for women as independent, free-thinking human beings whenever abortion is the topic. Immediately the woman is no longer a woman, but a mother even if it was not her choice to become one. She is no longer a human capable of making her own choices, but a mother who must sacrifice herself for the baby the law deems is now her responsibility no matter how it came to be. Women from a so-called “pro-life” POV exist primarily to carry and raise children.
