So it all boils down to this.
The GOP does not believe health care should be a government responsibility. War, prisons, executions, walls to keep immigrants out, tax breaks and subsidies for billionaires, restricting and limiting voting, these are all the governments business, but not health care. Unless that health care has to do with women’s reproduction, that of course is an acceptable place for GOP noses to go poking.
The umpteenth letter to the editor in our daily paper ranting how abortion is a moral failing that is ripping apart the very fabric of our country gave me pause.

Answering the question asked by Raddatz, “What role your religion has played in your own personal views on abortion”, the candidates gave voters a fundamental choice between systems of government.
As it gets harder and harder to cobble together the time I need to put coherent thoughts in […]
