I found the article House Passes Student Loan Bill That Would Cut Preventive Health Programs on the Truthdig web site.
“Make no mistake … our Republican colleagues haven’t changed their minds about this, they’ve changed their tactics,” said Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md. “If they really wanted to stop student loans from increasing, they wouldn’t seek to cover the cost by cutting funds for cervical cancer screening, by cutting funds for breast cancer screening, by cutting other women’s health care measures. They wouldn’t push a measure the president has already said he will veto.”
If you want to hear sounds like the bleating of a stuck pig, read the article for the Republicans’ disclaimer about what they are trying to do. I won’t bother to sully this blog by posting them here.
I may have to start a category on this blog, Republican War On Women, so you can find the numerous articles more easily.
I’ll let you make the connection between this story and the need to elect Elizabeth Warren to the U.S. Senate. I won’t metnion it myself. Oops, I just did.
