Remember That Whole Wendy Davis Thing? 

jenn-gar:

You know, the Texan Senator who filibustered for over 13 hours to get an anti-abortion bill stopped?

Remember how they pushed it through anyway?

Well, one day before it would go into effect, a federal judge ruled that it was unconstitutional.

Halle-fucking-lujah!

"In the two years that the Democrats had the White House, the House, and the Senate, we got Wall Street reform, student loan reform, credit card reform, healthcare reform obviously, the Fair Pay Act, expanding of the GI bill, they re-authorized the children’s health insurance program, expanded national service programs, fixed the sentencing disparity for crack versus powdered cocaine. We got the 9/11 First Responder’s Bill, we got the Hate Crimes Act, they ratified the START Treaty between us and Russia on nuclear weapons, they repealed Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, they did Cash for Clunkers, they did the stimulus which included the largest middle-class tax cuts ever. That was all done by the Congress that was elected at the same time as President Obama in 2008. They were elected in November 2008, sworn in January 2009 and over the next 2 years they got all of those things done. Then, the Republicans did really well in the midterms, and Republicans took control of the House for the first time in years and, John Boehner became Speaker. And since then, there has not been a single significant piece of legislation enacted into law."  -

Rachel Maddow, 9/30/13 (via alexaaact)

Rachel took me to church tonight. That is why I am always here for her. She was my safe haven when all this shit went down. She pulled no punches and told it how it was and is and how it will be. Still can’t believe this is happening doe. Damnit!!!!

Just so we’re clear on how radical and extremist the Republican Party is… 

eraof-goodfeelings:

So just to clarify, the Affordable Care Act

  • Passed both the House and the Senate
  • Was signed into law by Obama in 2010
  • Was upheld as constitutional by the Supreme Court in 2012

And yet now it’s 2013 and the GOP in the House has voted 40 times to repeal it and is now going to shut down the fucking government because they can’t handle the democratic process.

Ok.
