The Republican ‘War On Women’ and Republican Extremism – ‘Texas Republicans Consider Charging Wendy Davis $2.4 Million For Special Session’

How dare anyone disagree with a Republican!!

Why a filibuster is just un American!!

Of course if you applied the same rule to the Republicans in the US Senate – the Republicans would have fork over just about enough to pay off the national debt.

So to Texan Republicans – the difference is it was a (gasp) Democrat using the filibuster.

How dare anyone disagree with a Republican!!

Rank and file Republicans – our neighbors, co workers – are too afraid to stand up to this extremism so congratulations!

This is the ‘new’ Republican Party and it’s all yours!

‘When Wendy Davis made her epic stand in the Texas Senate, on behalf of women across the state, in an effort to filibuster an extreme anti-abortion bill, she ruffled the feathers of each of her Republican colleagues’.

‘Now they want to punish her for standing up to them by slapping her with the $1.6 million cost of the two special legislative sessions to pass it, plus another $800,000 if a third session is needed to pass legislation that was originally supposed to be the focus of the first session. In all, the total cost could reach $2.4 million’.

‘According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, GOP state Rep. Giovanni Capriglione thinks Davis should have to foot the bill on behalf of Texas taxpayers, and for not allowing Republicans to run roughshod over democracy’.

“I am upset at the cost. I think we need to remember why we are having this extra special session. One state senator, in an effort to capture national attention, forced this special session. I firmly believe that Sen. Wendy Davis should reimburse the taxpayers for the entire cost of the second special session. I am sure that she has raised enough money at her Washington, D.C., fundraiser to cover the cost.”

  2. Perhaps, if we use this logic, we can fine the GOP for complete obstruction and eliminate the deficit AND fund Social Security and Medicare until 2113!

  3. Sounds good to me, Elyse! If only…..
