Another Georgia Republican Forgot The Camera Was Rolling, Accidentally Spoke His Mind

Another Georgia Republican Forgot The Camera Was Rolling, Accidentally Spoke His Mind

““These remarks illustrate how callous and out-of-touch Ralph and the Georgia Republican Party have become," chairman DuBose Porter said in the statement. "It is awful to think you could tell a woman who was just diagnosed with breast cancer that it’s her fault.”

This quote is really not that surprising when you consider another GOP Rep from Georgia's comments, as quoted from The Stir:

State Rep. Terry England was speaking in favor of HB 954, which makes it illegal to obtain an abortion after 20 weeks even if the woman is known to be carrying a stillborn fetus or the baby is otherwise not expected to live to term. He then recalled his time working on a farm, explaining, “Life gives us many experiences ... I’ve had the experience of delivering calves, dead and alive. Delivering pigs, dead or alive. It breaks our hearts to see those animals not make it.””

“From http://blog.al.com/breaking/2013/08/federal_employees_wait_to_see.html

None of the spending bills passed by the House include a raise for federal workers. It did, however, approve a 1.8 percent pay raise for military personnel in 2014, an amount higher than the 1 percent the Obama administration and the Pentagon are proposing.... For its part, the Obama administration continues to push for some sort of increase for federal workers.

The House has passed four spending bills so far: Defense; Energy and Water Development; Homeland Security; and Military Construction-Veterans Affairs. The bills don't address a pay raise for civilian workers, other than to say funding for a pay raise is not included.

Looks like Republicans aren't much interested in pay increases of any percentage for Federal workers...shocking!”

“Only for themselves (Republicans in the House) which I'm sure they will again vote a big raise for themselves before this session of congress goes on vacation for the holidays!”
