Your post is extremely astute and factual.<quoted text>
ALL 300 or so, unanimously, all 300 Republican congressmen and senators voted ON PRINCIPLE? Not one single dissenting vote? All men and women of principle? Are you finished with your unfunny jokes? To vote so that, at minimum, 55 million + non health insured get some kind of coverage is a principle? Well, I'll be.
Innocent, unborn fetus, you say. That is your opinion, to be respected I guess. My opinion is I don't know at which point the fetus is a human being. Do you? What do you rely on to establish it as such? 1st century medical journals? As I said, I don't know, so even though I am basically opposed to abortion for reasons other than yours, I declare myself free choice.
You talk of democrats changing their minds as elections approach. Of course, they are vile politicians just like the rest of them. But tell me, what about those "principled" republicans voting UNANYMOUSLY against obamacare, a near-exact copy of Romney's Mass. health care law? Waiting.
You should also remind our friend obs, that Bush/Cheney had the power to overturn Roe vs Wade and did nothing about it.
For 6 out of 8 years Bush/Cheney had a Republican House, Republican Senate, and with Roberts and Alito a Rightwing Republican Supreme Court.
Obskeptic beliefs are misguided.
