It’s interesting though – in these last two years … the Republican led House of Representatives had no problem passing a bill to privatize Social Security and Medicare (twice); they were considered persona non-gratis in the Senate and didn’t even come up for a vote. Republicans had no problems passing tax cuts for millionaires or bills to limit a woman’s availability to abortion services. House Republicans had no problem passing a bill to make it legal for a woman’s employer to decide whether or not she should have access to contraception. House Republicans had no problem cutting Medicaid, cutting funding for free lunch programs and rape crisis centers, pushing for anti-union laws, trying to neuter regulators that hold banks accountable like the CFTC, passing tax cuts for oil companies, expanding loopholes for multinational corporations, and eliminating capital gains taxes which would be a huge windfall to the rich.
