So much for Mitch turning his full attention to DACA. That didn’t last long.
“Thar’s only one way t’ become a Merkin,” Mitch didn’t say, “y’all gotta be born heah!”
Shorter Wingnuttia: we return to the well for our tried-and-true wedge issue to drive the Xristian Xrazies to the polls in 2018.
Look, there is no way that amply be-chinned Mitch can get to 60 votes to overturn the expected filibuster. And the bill does not have any exceptions for the health of the mother or the viability of the fetus, though it does have a rape/incest clause. However, if the rape/incest was not reported to the police (and all that that entails)… then you are having your rapist’s baby. So even if somehow this bill makes it through the sausage factory, it will not pass legal scrutiny.
This is a show horse.
