You missed such a perfect opportunity to start the headline with
"Have you ever needed an example for the rule about headlines that start with a question?"

This whole "Republicans are OF COURSE going to suddenly reverse two generations of Republican Party orthodoxy on social spending now that they've won the abortion fight" is the wishfulliest thinking that ever thought a wish.

// their objections to social spending were never rooted in abortion, so why would the end of abortion be at all relevant now?
// these are things centrist Republicans tell themselves to make themselves feel better sell to gullible dupes to make themselves poll better

LOL, yeah OK.

Now complete with the popular and oft-used pic of McConnell doing the concerned looking down eyeglasses adjustment thing.  I swear he has practices that in the mirror.

"You don't want to be promoting policies that lock in support for a model of family life that is detached from work and from marriage, which are of course two of the key avenues for economic progress even in the 21st century."

If their anti-Roe push were about life, there may have been a small chance. But it was about a combination between a puritanical "sex is for procreation only" and "fark the poors", so absolutely not.

Oh, there'll be bills.  Single mothers of newborns will have to work at least 20 hrs a week to qualify.  Any expenses covered will be paid by reimbursement after drug testing.  I could go on.  So could anyone.  Just imagine the most degrading program and you'll be close.  The USM. (United States of Mordor).

By giving funds to all sorts of religious entities across various religious sects, Republicans have already increased the social safety nets more than the compounded effects of all liberal leftist presidents combined

"Republicans claim to be for small government - but where it comes to abortion they are for big government. Traditional views about women - and disrespect for poor women - may blind Republicans to these contradictions," said Reva Siegel, a Yale Law School professor who wrote a brief unsuccessfully urging the supreme court to overturn the Mississippi law at issue in the Dobbs case.

All that education and you can't figure out that there's no contradiction in their views. They want sluts to suffer. Shouldn't have spread your legs. No carefree sex for you, there will be consequences! Why do you think they want to come after birth control next? Hell, most of their world view is built around wanting people to suffer, even themselves, as long as someone they hate suffers more.

I'm so sick of the basic hypocrisy of the whole 'pro-life' BS

you can't be pro-life and support the death penalty at the same time

most christian religions that oppose abortion do baptism as a sacrament, and until a person is baptized, they are not a child of god

but they'll happily put people to death that are begging their god to help them, some have even been proven innocent after the fact

/you get to pick one

Republicans won't even lift a finger for the two groups they claim to support.

Florida's Marco Rubio has published a plan that would allow families to pull from their social security benefits to fund paid family leave.

O rly.  That's not how any of this works.

The WaPo, today: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2022/07/05/is-it-time-national-public-health-system/

FTWaPoACommission members are quick to point out what a national public health system is not. Gerberding, who served as director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention during the George W. Bush administration,, is clear that the proposal isn't to federalize public health, but to set standards.
...
There is also a real danger to giving the federal government too much power. Just think about what could happen if a president who, for example, promotes anti-vaccine conspiracy theories has greater control over public health policies.


Hmm. I guess that's how Canada operates. I don't think that Canadians think about it in those terms, though. Although Doug Ford and Jason Kenney were extremely interventionist, (and Doug still is), refusing to lock down when Covid is raging. Doug Ford is rationing vaccines right now, and it's spreading Covid worse than ever.
