Republicans support gang rape

Republicans for Rape

Yesterday, 30 Republican senators opposed an amendment to the Defense Appropriations bill that would prohibit federal defense contractors like Halliburton/KBR from getting money "if they restrict their employees from taking workplace sexual assault, battery and discrimination cases to court."


Republicans fucking disgust me.

GOtta love how you can spin it anyway you want. I am sure that is why they opposed it so people wouldnt take cases to court. If you believe that then wow. People always look at the negatives in a bill then blame them for opposing it.

I agree that is stupid to have the clause in there but it is in there.

Your reply didn't make any sense. yes you can spin things many ways, but in this case they voted specifically against this clause, because they are owned by the military-industrial complex.

Is it? Of course it is, but so is not voting for something because you're a corporate slut and have no moral values while supposedly being from the party of moral values.

I am at first outraged by this article. On second look though, there has to be a little more to this story. Such as, what else is contained in this proposed amendment? Rarely are they just about the one item. My guess is there was a lot of spending in there along with this clause. That was probably the reason they voted against it.

The link to the amendment itself was in the article that I posted.
From the ^ Library of Congress site: AMENDMENT PURPOSE:
To prohibit the use of funds for any Federal contract with Halliburton Company, KBR, Inc., any of their subsidiaries or affiliates, or any other contracting party if such contractor or a subcontractor at any tier under such contract requires that employees or independent contractors sign mandatory arbitration clauses regarding certain claims.
