C19 Bill

The Democrats are so deeply concerned with the health of the nation that they are trying to smuggle abortion and gun control measures into the funding bill.

This is typical Washington, and I know Republicans have done it at times as well.  But it is dishonest at a profound level.

Even worse, I saw someone complaining that Republicans in Congress were “inserting anti-abortion language” into the bill. Which is patently false unless your default is that including abortion measures is normal and stripping that out is politicizing things.

This precise claim cropped up on the Project Gutenberg site where I spend so much time. Step 1: Bad Rs are inserting anti-abortion language in the emergency bill. Step 2: No, they're only stripping pro-abortion D language that didn't belong in an emergency bill. Step 3: Bad Rs don't realize that abortion protections are even more important in an emergency, when people can't deal with unwanted pregnancies but certainly aren't going to avoid sex, be realistic. I'm not making this up.
