gop fail 2gop voted against vawa

Via Think Progress (follow the link for more):

[B]y a vote of 286 to 138, the House passed the bipartisan Senate-approved version of the bill — one that includes added protections for LGBT, Native American, and undocumented victims of domestic violence. All 138 votes against the bill were Republicans.

Again, all 138 votes against the bill were Republicans.

Here's a comment under lwdgrfx's earlier post Voting Against the Violence Against Women Act Must Mean That You’re For Violence Against Women:


Perhaps the bill contains other language that is unconstitutional and gives the government power it isnt entitled to, and once again, the liberals hide it in "feel good" legislation!

Like what? Protecting LGBT? Native Americans? *gasp!* Undocumented immigrants? So Farmgirl thinks it's okay to abuse some women?

Yes, this law does does protect without discrimination. Ooo, scary! And you know what? We libs feel awfully good about legislation like that. What a shame Farmgirl doesn't. Her "perhaps" delusion is only surpassed by her paranoia.

She added this:

If you allow Tribal police to start arresting whites, they lose their sovereignty, and will become irrelevant and the whites will begin to usurp our tribal authority, distressing speech will become a federal offense, and you will begin nationalizing state business. You make a very shortsighted argument for very long range consequences.

Pot. Kettle. Shortsighted.
