Sen. Rand Paul will obstruct flood insurance bill with amendment defining when life begins
An amendment which, of course, has nothing to do with floods or insurance but has everything to do with his party’s plan to do nothing until Election Day.
Think Progess reports that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is trying to attach an anti-choice amendment to the Senate’s flood insurance bill.
“After years of delay, senators recently came to an agreement over the flood bill and were set to vote on it this week. But now, Paul is threatening to hold up its final passage by adding an amendment defining when life begins. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) expressed his displeasure with that move this morning, saying he would not bring the bill up for a vote if the amendment is added. […] The National Flood Insurance Program helps homeowners whose houses are destroyed by floods — like those that devastated Minnesota and are currently sweeping Florida — and has absolutely nothing to do with abortion or conception.”
Why does Aqua Budda have a sudden interest in women’s issues like contraception and choice — is it like auditioning to be Romney’s VP? Isn’t he supposed to be a libertarian with the whole individual liberty, smaller government, ‘keep the federal gov’mit out of my business’ routine? I know, I know — that claptrap only applies to white males. Clearly.
