Republicans are always bitching that they are unfairly painted as the party of big business, and that their lower tax, private business agenda actually speaks for the little people. They also complain that they are unfairly portrayed as extremists on the abortion issue. Then you read crap like this:
Legislation intended to make it harder for people to erase their debts in bankruptcy court died in the House Thursday, scuttled by a dispute over how the law would apply to fines against abortion protesters.
(two worthless paragraphs skipped)
Anti-abortion Republicans blamed Senate Democrats for forcing them to vote against the bankruptcy legislation that came out of the House-Senate conference committee. Senate Democrats had inserted language into the compromise that would ban abortion protesters from using bankruptcy to avoid paying court fines for blocking clinics if they knowingly violated the law.
(another skipped paragraph)
Banking and credit card companies have been pushing the legislation for five years, but it has stalled each year in Congress. The House-Senate compromise reached this year represented the closest the measure has ever come to passage.
So, the only reason Republicans vote against a bill that probably would have made life hell for people in already difficult financial position is an opposition to abortion. Gee- Now I am convinced you are not a wholly owned subsidiary of big business.
