This will be short (and oh so sweet), but I wonder if you could see the spittle flying from the mouth of John Kyl (R-Aholeville) after Senator Debbie Stabenow smacked his ugly mug today during the Finance Committee hearings:
Just before the Senate Finance Committee wrapped up for the long weekend, members debated one of Sen. Jon Kyl's (R-AZ) amendments, which would strike language defining which benefits employers are required to cover.
Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) argued that insurers must be required to cover basic maternity care. (In several states there are no such requirements.)
"I don't need maternity care," Kyl said. "So requiring that on my insurance policy is something that I don't need and will make the policy more expensive."
Stabenow interrupted: "I think your mom probably did."
The amendment was defeated, nine to 14.
Yes, Senator John Kyl, standing up for Rich White Males everywhere, making sure we don't do anything crazy like provide maternity care for expectant mothers.
I mean, why should we join the rest of the advanced countries of the world, when the Republican ideal is to make sure we hang down with the impoverished 3rd world countries who also don't have maternity care.
Can these guys sound anymore like A-hole bastards, can they?
