Voting Against the Violence Against Women Act Must Mean That You're For Violence Against Women

If your party is already widely perceived as being at the forefront of the War Against Women, why would you vote against an act that protects women unless you're for violence against women?

I would think that a vote for the Violence Against Women act would be a 'no-brainer' for Republicans.  Apparently not. .  

9 Republican Congressmen voted against the VAWA and here they are: 
Paul Broun (GA)
Scott Garrett (NJ)
Louie Gohmert (TX)
Tim Huelskamp (KS)
Walter Jones (NC)
Steve King (IA)
Thomas Massie (KY)
Tom McClintock (CA)
and Matt Salmon (AZ)

     Pot. Kettle. Shortsighted.

    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.

    Sorry.  Nothing even remotely unconstitutional about this bill.  Good try.  And the only thing feel good about it is that it will protect women from abuse -- and every American citizen should rejoice in that!  DG

     Like what? Protecting gays? Native Americans? Oooo, scary! We libs feel good about stuff like that. A shame you don't. Paranoid much?

  • Farmgirl

    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!

    One might also draw from it that their nay votes could be construed as self-preservation.  Perhaps they are guilty of violence against women.  A lot can be drawn from their choice of vote, and none of it's good.  DG
