Once again, a bunch of mostly all white, old men, Right Wingers, Republicans, all got together, in spite of their claims of being "small government" advocates and ruled one more time against women's and couple's individual reproductive rights. This time, it was out of our own Jefferson City.
And they spent yet more state money in special session to do it, "Conservatives" that they are.
Are the roads and bridges and highways and sewers and all our infrastructure fixed?
Is I-70, from Illinois on the East, all through the state, to Kansas on the West, upgraded and improved and modernized and made safe?
Is our own Missouri Department of Transportation, MoDoT, fully funded and functioning?
But are women and couples' private, personal, again, reproductive rights yet more limited even though, as we know, abortion is legal and has been since 1973?
And they spent yet more state money, that they say we don't have, to do it!
I've said it before but why any woman would vote Republican is beyond me. Far beyond me. Well, unless she's a Right Wing, "Christian", anti-abortion zealot, of course.
But then, why any Black person, Hispanic, Latino, gay, physically-challenged or elderly person would vote Republican also baffles me completely. (Unless that elderly person is already filthy, stinking rich, of course. Then I think they have to vote Republican, don't they? Isn't that a law?).
Keeping in mind, this is also the state political party that just voted lower wages for Missourians into law, too.
