A bill dealing with floods is going through the legislature and someone attaches a fucking anti-abortion bit to it?
Before anyone suggests I would be ok with such a move if it were something I agreed with let me stipulate that I most certainly am not. I am no fan of riders to bills and think there should be a constitutional amendment preventing such things…whatever their stripe.
If your agenda (whatever it is) cannot be passed on its own then that should be the end of it. No latching it on to some other piece of legislation that is wholly unrelated to whatever it is that you are trying to push.
Yes, I know BOTH reps and dems do it. This happens to be a rep and an egregious example but not like he is the first (or last) to do it. It should be stopped.
Like we need another example of how fucked up congress is.
