    Santorum is on the right. Also, I didn't just say Santorum - even though you seem to be super obsessed with that part of my comment. I also mentioned those who were against Planned Parenthood and birth control mandates. Those attacks came from the right as well. Just like attacks against religion come from the left. Period. Have a nice day.

    Puhlease ... it's about the statute of limitations to file an equal pay claim.

    Under previous law the limitations period was ridiculously short; accordingly, by the time that many women discovered they had been discriminated against, their claims were already time barred.

It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

Working to prevent frivilous lawsuits hardly constitutes an attack on woman.
    A typically lame Republican excuse. The Courts are well equipped to deal with frivilous lawsuits.

    The courts need to be equipped to deal with frivolous lawsuits. If they were well equipped we wouldnt be seeing so many. Also it is not an excuse. That was their reasoning. Their legitimate reasoning in some people's minds. Do you realize that a person can oppose parts but not all parts of a bill? A person could introduce a bill banning slavery but also murdering all women. If I vote no on that would I then be against slavery? No. I know its an extreme example but it shows my point.

    yep thats it I agree 100%

    a BS fear tacit mixed with some truth.

    If it was a treat the cupcake and sprinkles would be BS but the icing would be the truth.

    Its not a war at all but some certainly want to infringe on womens rights.

    For the love of crhist, man. Being against free birth control is not being against women's rights. It's being against unsubstantiated preferential treatment for women via federal legislation. It isn't an attack on women, a war on women, or an attempt to suppress women. It's an attempt to avoid increasing the costs of healthcare for everybody so women can have something for "free" that poor women already get "free" and middle class, insurance covered women can get for as low as $10/month, co-pays dependent.

    At the expense of tax payers, in an era when revenue is only 2/3 of total expenditure. Yeah, nothing important, or anything.

    Re: Biden: 'War on Women' is Real, Will Intensify

    Some responses in this thread make me want to just say: "I do not have to LIKE or SUPPORT every woman out there who's on the tv, news, radio or in politics just because they're women"

    I can dislike whoever I want - like Anne Coulter who's a racist, heartless bitch - all I like.

    We're not in the Sororal of the Vaginas, here.

    K? Thanks

    (And that doesn't even constitute what I would consider a 'war on women' - if there was a 'war on women' it would center around rights - like voting, equal pay for work - and so on)

    I wasn't talking about people who oppose mandates for what they perceive as practical reasons. I made that clear in my original comment to you:

    Also, you keep trying to correct me over something that's a matter of perception. Kinda nonsensical.
