But it’s NOT Republican obstructionism – ‘Nikki Haley Vetoes Child Vaccination Bill, Calls It Taxpayer-Funded Healthcare Mandate’
‘The measure was passed with overwhelming bipartisan support according to the Lexington (S.C.) Patch’.
‘The measure passed with a 63-40 House vote and 40-2 Senate vote’.
“This bill had bipartisan support and gives optional education and preventative vaccines to adolescents in an effort to thwart cervical cancer. This is a common sense approach to a very serious problem. To call this measure unnecessary is demeaning and insulting to the heroic women who fight this cancer everyday. I am deeply disappointed that politics once again has prevailed over women’s health.”
‘Haley’s move carries with it an air of hypocrisy as when she was a state representative in 2007 she had co-sponsored a bill authorizing mandatory HPV vaccinations to be given to girls in the seventh grade. Haley had eventually withdrew her support for the bill because it did not include an opt out clause for parents to decline the vaccine if they didn’t want their children to have it’.
‘The hypocritical part of the story is that Sellers’ bill did include the very opt-out clause that Haley fought for’.

‘(Republicans) proposed it before they were against it….’
‘But this is just more evidence of obstructionism without serious proposals’.
