Do you really think the Republican Party plans to do away with Medicare? Do you really think they want to be the ones who deprive women of their right to not be abused? For that matter, do you really think they care one little bit about same-sex marriage or reproductive rights? If they were so intent on kowtowing to the gun lobby, why are we still doing background checks? If you think their intent is to do all those horrible things the Republican House is proposing, you need to ask yourself why they didn’t pass these laws when they had a chance between 2001 and 2006, when they had total control of the entire apparatus. They could have done so much untold damage in that time, yet all they’ve really done is given their rich patrons huge tax cuts, then borrowed and spent like drunken teenagers with a no-limit credit card to pay for unwise tax cuts and for shit we didn’t need.
