Democrats speak out
Freedom Caucus forcing U.S. between a rock and a hard place
Remember laughing at the polls that showed that Americans disliked Obamacare, but liked the Affordable Care Act? Millions of Americans were not aware that both names referred to the same program. We’ve a similar problem today. Polls indicate that 76% of voters like the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law making possible reconstruction of roads and bridges. And 72% are happy about the CHIPS and Science Act bringing the manufacture of semiconductors back to the U.S. and strengthening supply chains. Yet, the approval rating for President Joe Biden has been below 50% since September of 2021.
Republican supermajority increasingly hostile to girls and women
Idaho is home. It’s where many of us were raised and where we chose to raise our families. But as a mother of two daughters, I can no longer encourage them to settle here. This breaks my heart, but Idaho’s cruel laws deny their freedoms and put them at risk if they ever become pregnant. Countless families face the same gut-wrenching dilemma. Sadly, Idaho’s extreme abortion ban is just one example of the legislature’s growing hostility to girls and women. Roe v. Wade protected Idahoans from the most extreme positions of its Republican lawmakers. Once it was overturned, Idaho’s hardline abortion ban took effect. Not only does the law have near-unworkable exceptions for victims of rape and incest but it also allows the rapist’s family members to sue for cash awards if the victim receives an abortion. Terrifyingly, the ban has zero exceptions to protect the patient’s health and future fertility.
