Mitt Romney has selected Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his vice presidential running mate, introducing the seven-term congressman and architect of Republicans’ budget-cutting plans at a spirited rally on the deck of a battleship here Saturday morning. (ugh)
Okay! I am offended just because you are trying to loose, Mitt.
Republicans invariably claim that Democrats want to raise your taxes, but Republicans want to give you a tax cut. Both claims are lies. In fact Obama and the Democrats have cut taxes for the 99% more than Bush ever did. The truth here is that Obama and the Democrats want to cut your taxes and raise taxes only on millionaires and billionaires. Conversely Republicans want to raise your taxes and cut them for millionaires and billionaires. The dirt is in the details…
In case you’ve heard about the Paul Ryan budget but didn’t have the details.
Fuck the republicans!!! Seriously!
If it is a Ryan plan it is likely to raise the deficit as well.
Hey look, it’s Leviticus - weren’t a bunch of people trying to tell me that the old testament doesn’t apply any more last week?
I just want to point out that it says “if a man lies with a man”; not if a “woman lies with a woman”. So in the eyes of this cherry picked passage only gay male sex would be wrong; why are they giving it to a lesbian?
Mitt Romney fails to resonate with senior Conservative Party figures, most of whom have a much closer connection to Barack Obama, a Cabinet minister has disclosed to The Huffington Post on Friday. Their comments will add to the sense that the presidential hopeful’s trip to London on the eve of the Olympics has been something of a PR disaster for the Republican party.
TIM PAWLENTY: The former Minnesota governor signed a mandatory 24-hour delay for women seeking abortion care into law, and while serving in the state House, he wrote a bill to require women to be told medically inaccurate information about abortion services. But Pawlenty also approved a bill ensuring that women who have been sexually assaulted have access to emergency contraception — a measure similar to one Romney vetoed.
ROB PORTMAN: While serving in the House of Representatives and Senate, the current Ohio senator has voted on 115 bills related to abortion and reproductive rights — 114 of which were anti-choice. He repeatedly voted for the Federal Abortion Ban, which criminalizes some abortion services, and Portman co-sponsored a bill to effectively ban abortion coverage in state health insurance exchanges.
KELLY AYOTTE: The first-term New Hampshire senator has never cast a pro-choice vote. In 2003, Ayotte argued a case before the U.S. Supreme Court defending New Hampshire’s law requiring a girl who is a minor to notify a parent before she has an abortion.
MARCO RUBIO: The Florida senator has sponsored two bills that would gut the expansion of contraception coverage in the Affordable Care Act. He also voted to prevent Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funding, which would have denied health care and preventive services to millions of women.
BOBBY JINDAL: While serving in the House of Representatives, Jindal voted eight times to limit abortion access and other reproductive rights issues. And just last month, the current Louisiana governor signed three anti-choice bills into law.
JOHN THUNE: The senator from South Dakota co-sponsored a bill to allow hospitals to deny emergency abortion care, even when a woman’s life is in danger. And while serving in Congress, Thune has voted repeatedly to deny military women the right to use their own, private money for abortion care in military hospitals.
