Your Body? Republicans will have you believe it’s their body. Your are Republican Property.
“Again, ma’am, I know you say it’s your body, your choice, but I don’t think you’re having any children anytime soon,” she added. “I think we need to focus on the future of America and that’s our children because they are our future and the unborn; they’re our future also.

“In order to force democrats to negotiate on their terms specifically on spending cuts, a House Republican majority … will hold the U.S. government and all of us, and the global economy, hostage,” said Hayes. “If they bust through it, they don’t raise the debt limit, it would most likely mean, like, genuine domestic and global financial calamity at a time of tremendous uncertainty.
