The Violence Against Women Act– which usually passes unanimously or near-unanimously — was approved to be reauthorized today in the Senate by a 68-31 vote.
Those 31 nay votes? They were all white Republican men.
Two of the 31 were our own Sen. Rand Paul and Sen. Mitch McConnell.
Considering how much libertarian men hate the Violence Against Women Act (and women), I wondered back in 2010 how Rand would vote on this. I guess we know now.
We also probably know how Rand Paul’s volunteer coordinator from Bourbon County feels about this.
And of course, we should tip our hat to our beloved Mitch McConnell, who thinks it’s crazy to suggest that there is a Republican War on Women happening. I bet he’ll even tell you that the four Republican women in his caucus voted against it…
Keep wooing those ladies, White Male Liberty Patriots!
(P.S.- It’s not entirely fair to say that these old white Republican guys voted against this only because of their unhealthy views towards women. It’s also their unhealthy views towards The Gays and Mexicans.)
