    Flood insurance bill snag: Abortion

    The Senate’s flood insurance program looked like it was headed toward smooth passage – but now, there appears to be an abortion-related wrinkle.

    Yes, abortion.

    That’s at least according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who said Tuesday that a Republican senator is insisting on a vote on an amendment defining “when life begins.” Reid didn’t name the senator, but it was Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) who had offered the amendment.

    “I think some of this stuff is just – I have been very patient working with my Republican colleagues in allowing relevant amendments on issues, and sometimes we even do non-relevant amendments,” Reid said. “But really, on flood insurance?”

    I wonder when Libertarians will simply admit that they're Conservatives made in the image of Milton Freedman.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    and they say Republicans don't have a history of obstruction.

    what RP is doing is disgusting, immoral and outrageous.

    until today, I thought it was impossible.

    not only is he more nuts, but he is more of a petty obstructionist.

    this is why riders to bills are a bad thing and need to be outlawed. Through history both sides have used riders to get attention or trying to get things passed that would not stand on their own.

    We need change on how Congress does business.

    This is why there needs to be a one subject at a time law regarding bills.I am adamantly opposed to abortion except to save the life of the mother so I am not some abortionist injecting pro-abortionist bias in supporting one subject at a time.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    No abortion in cases of rape and incest?

    Just like what the DP usually does. Of course, it makes sense, the modern RP is just disenfranchised southern Democrats with a religious hard-on.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
