Open note to Senator Roy Blunt
Senator Roy Blunt has this on his Facebook page today: Had a good conversation with Rob Bluey at the Heritage Foundation about the Obama Administration’s violation of Americans’ religious freedoms. I’d appreciate your feedback – what do you think about this rule? To which I say, jobs, Senator, jobs. Focus. You and the Republican Party. Anyway, supposedly the Republican Party is about "small government." If so, why are you and all your fellow political party members so interested in controlling a woman's--or a couple's--personal, reproductive rights? Get out of their bedroom, Senator. Get us some jobs legislation. I-70, for instance, needs to be rebuilt from St. Louis to Kansas City. THAT would be excellent for jobs, the economy and commerce. This whole protest by the Right Wing, the Catholics and the Republican Party is "much ado about nothing."
