    nothing to see here. Move along.
    I went back to this post because I have to say, doing a little pre search, I can't find whom the "petitioners" are...I am not sure now if such a petition exists now or not, but I will keep searching....

    Im not looking for who the "petitioners" are. I was wondering where the link to the petition was on the whitehouse.gov site.
    That's what i dont understand. Why would an online news org NOT link to said petition. Leads me to believe this is nothing more than right wing fake outrage.

    yeah, I don't know what's going on here, but I'd like to think that I am intellectually honest enough that even if it isn't on the WH site, it could still be something, just something team "O" doesn't want to highlight....But, even that, I would need the name of the group protesting...I can't find it, so at this point I have to call BS on WashTimes, and my own OP....

    No he was for healthcare that someone else was going to pay for---he went quid pro quo for their votes. That doesnt mean hes for them, it means he knows how to buy their votes with someone else's money.

    good.
    What I find laughable is that conservatives are the ones that are leading the charge on this.. especially considering that is the conservatives in the US that are the most misogynist of all... everything from abortion to so few female politicians with the GOP tag on them.

    What about health care for men?

    He didn't pander to the male vote at all, but promise free birth control pills and abortion and he's a rock star to screaming female bimbos.

    He wants healthcare for everyone, paid for by everyone. People were complaining a hell of a lot more about paying for care that's specific to women, no one talked about denying any male specific healthcare.

    He was for healthcare that everyone would pay for and healthcare that didn't exclude care specific to women..that's very important to a lot of people and yes being for that is still being for women in that way especially if he's consistent with it.

    Why isn't it the case? Didn't a couple of thousand sign a petition? Just because millions of women voters don't agree with the 2,200 petitioners doesn't mean he escaped scrutiny.

    Polls show that a comfortable margin of adults say that abortion should be legal, either always or most of the time and almost three quarters of Americans oppose the Roe v. Wade decision being overturned. Seems that they were already "swayed". It could be said that one reason why some didn't vote for the other guy, is they didn't want it legislated that their doctor be required to shove a device between their legs, like some conservative controlled states have already passed and at least another considering it.

    Birth control on someone elses dime? It's just one of many other preventative services that require no co-pay, such as, cholesterol screening, colorectal Cancer screening, Type 2 Diabetes screening, Immunization vaccine, etc. It's not free, you pay for it in the premium, it's included in the health care coverage under the ACA.

    Ahhh, there's one of those mucho macho cons now...LOL! You don't even have to call them out, just turn on the light and they show up.

    The whole thread was started as bait (along with many others), with no merit, but that fact swooshed right on by some...LOL!!!
