Debbie Wasserman-Schultz claims Republicans want to redefine rape because of Democrat co-sponsored H.R. 3 bill
I wonder what’s going to happen if the Supreme Court strikes down ObamaCARE. Are Marxist Democrats like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz going to claim that the Supreme Court want’s to “refine rape?” In Wasserman-Schultz’s warped view, Republicans (and Mitt Romney) want to redefine rape because of H.R. 3 – the bill to repeal ObamaCARE. That bill was co-sponsored by Illinois Democrat Dan Lipinski and got 16 Democrats votes. The bill passed the House with a 251-175 vote last May. So do all those 251 members of the House trying to redefine rape too?
Actually, the bill never proposed to redefine rape in any statute. The limitation of “forcible” applied only to federal funding of abortions, not to the definition of rape itself. The Democratic Senate never took up the bill anyway, but HR3 was basically the Hyde Amendment written into statute rather than as a budget rider. That would have allowed Congress to ensure that taxpayer funding didn’t go to abortion coverage under ObamaCare — which the Obama administration assured pro-life Representatives and voters wouldn’t happen as long as Obama’s weak executive order of the time remained in force.
Looks like Demagogues — excuse me, Democrats — are getting a little desperate to push the War on Wimmenses meme these days.
