A few links showing their love and respect for women:
State Rep. Joel Kleefisch doesn’t like divorce, and he doesn’t like prenuptial agreements. But he’s proposing a bill that would make such agreements ironclad, even if they are entered into fraudulently.
Wait did I read that right? Even if it is entered into fraudulently Joel?
Kleefisch, a former television reporter, left some on the committee shaking their heads when he suggested that people victimized by a spouse deserve what they get.
“It’s caveat emptor in this case,” he said. “Obviously, someone entering upon a prenuptial agreement should be consulting with an attorney
Hmmmm I wonder if he has bi-partisan support here? Let’s see what Rep. Gary Hebl(my rep) thinks about this bill:
During the debate over the bill, Hebl increasingly began to take on the appearance of a man who was beating his head against a wall. Here’s one exchange:
Hebl: “If a person does act in bad faith, there’s no question that their action is protected by this law.”
Kleefisch: “Which is why someone entering into a prenuptial agreement should be very careful.”
Hebl, visibly shocked: “Well my God.”
Hebl went on to say of the bill: “It justifies illegal, immoral, unfair behavior.”
Kleefisch offered to discuss an amendment that would penalize a spouse for failing to disclose financial information. But Hebl rejected the notion.
“Remember that statement about lipstick on a pig?” Hebl said. “Sometimes there’s just nothing you can do to a bill to make it viable.”
Not wanting to beat my head against the wall, lets move on to item number 2.
Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said on a radio show last week that the GOP’s strategy for reducing “the Democratic advantage” should be to marry off all the single mothers who “look to the government for help.”
“Look at the political base of the Democratic Party: It is single mothers who run a household,” he told Tony Perkins, president of the Christian conservative think tank Family Research Council. “Why? Because it’s so tough economically that they look to the government for help and therefore they’re going to vote. So if you want to reduce the Democratic advantage, what you want to do is build two parent families, you eliminate that desire for government.”
Speaking of getting married, a New Jersey Republican has some “great” advice to the women out there
Mitsch, a retired real estate broker running in a heavily Democratic district in Camden County, told The Philadelphia Inquirer he was actually advising men with his Twitter post. He told his 44,000 followers on Sept. 2: “Women, you increase your odds of keeping your men by being faithful, a lady in the living room and a whore in the bedroom.”
“That’s a great tip,” he said at a meeting Wednesday with the editorial board. “That shows the utmost respect for women. … What I was trying to say to men was, ‘Men, look, if you got to go out and play around and you can’t be honest with a woman and respect her, then you’re better off just doing pay, play, and get the ‘F’ away.'”
4. Finally, the Wisconsin republicans are trying to overturn the \"equal pay enforcement act\". The republicans have introduced Senate Bill 202 which would prevent women who have experienced job discrimination to plead their cases in Wisconsin Circuit Court. Wisconsin women still earn 75% of that earned by their male colleagues on average.
So the republicans point out that there is no need for women to have redress because we all know they get treated as less than equal in the workplace. Here is the press relase from Rep. Sinicki and Sen. Hansen.
I didnt even bring up their attacks on planned parenthood, that’s another post!
