When Palin was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, in the state with the most rape victims per capita, they were charging rape victims for forensic testing because they said that it was too much of a burden for tax payers (good god, how much raping is going on in that small town with all the supposed values that paying for rape tests takes up so much revenue? And so much for all that holy roller 'abstinence only' education. sheesh) It took a state law to get them on track and for Alaska to qualify for federal funding from Joe Biden's legislation H.R.3355: Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994
John McCain not only voted against Biden's legislation in 1994 but voted against funding it just last October!
John McCain and Sarah Palin believe in a woman's right to pay for her own rape test.
Why do Republicans hate children and poor people?
John McCain who thinks he is so fiscally responsible doesn't find any problem with lining the pockets of war profiteers but has little or no regard for the welfare of women or children in this fucked up, good old boy country of his. Values, my ass!
He agreed with Bush's veto of SCHIP Reauthorization (H.R. 976) a children's health insurance program, saying the bill provided a "phony smoke and mirrors way of paying for it."
And what is Medicare? And so? Isn't it quite fascist to privatize that which we pay taxes for?
The bill, which would cost $35 billion over five years, is meant to expand the State Children's Health Insurance Program to provide coverage to an additional 10 million children.
Bush said he vetoed the bill because he considered it a step towards "federalizing" medicine and an inappropriately expanding the program's goal beyond its original focus on helping poor children.
During an interview onboard the CNN Election Express in South Carolina, McCain said he agreed with the president's decision.
"The American people have rebelled against out-of-control spending. If they can find a legitimate way to pay for it, I would consider it," he said.
They have not rebelled against spending for themselves, asshole! It's okay to give back to the citizens, dirtbag.
I really don't know how much longer I can keep up my sanity.
