Given the general indifference Republicans show towards women, it will surprise many around the world that GOP senators joined with Democrats to unanimously pass a bill giving basic rights to sexual-assault survivors.

The “Sexual Assault Survivors' Rights Act” introduced by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H) establishes the right for victims' to have their rape kits preserved for free and prevent rape kits from being destroyed until the statute of limitations ends in the state where the crime occurred.

Victims must receive 60 days in advance notice of the kit's expiration date from the state is also a provision in the Act.

Had this bill passed congress after Trump becomes POTUS, it would have been assured a veto.

The only thing about the Act that surprises me is that it would appear that evidence of severe crime was not maintained till statute of limitations overtook its usefulness.

Then I presume you are one of the few surprised as this passed a Republican controlled Senate. The rest of us are not so hyper-partisan.

Since the first part of your sentence is NOT a given, that means the second part of your sentence can only be true for those who share your partisan and non-reality-based perception.

Typical liberal...

First you spout off with nonsense and then you shut down any acceptance of discussion. I can only think the reason you posted this is to hear yourself talk.

The OP has 48 posts 36 of which are thread starters. Chances are he won't be back here.

Indifference towards women?

It's just another bigot deciding for us what we believe, it's no different than the people who pushed the "watermelon and fried chicken eating" image of blacks. They hate and need a reason to justify their hate, so they grab on to some stupid crap that some other bigot said and decide that it's the truth, so their hatred is justified.

Congress was able to put aside its partisan rancor long enough to actually pass a bipartisan bill? Wow, I am surprised.

Bills that are passed unanimously can easily overcome a veto.

I can't stand the Republicans. I think Trump would be a disaster. And I do believe certain Republican positions are detrimental to women. But I can understand where they are coming from, even if I disagree.

But seriously? This has to be one of the more partisan posts I have seen. Republicans think law enforcement is one of the responsibilities government should have so this bill doesn't violate their principles AND it helps crime victims AND it doesn't cost much. Why would Republicans be against this?

Apparently, they weren't.

Despite the fact that the Democrats were for it.

Maybe there is hope after all.

Nutter comment. Obvious troll is obvious.
