Very Interesting.....

*** The U.S. House of Representatives will have a vote scheduled on abortions this week.  It is incredible that the Republicans in charge of the House refuse to back any of the jobs bills authored by President Obama. Instead, Boehner, Stivers, Cantor, and the rest of the tea party Republicans want to continue to control your ovaries, tubes, and uterus. The Republicans and their obsession with female reproductive parts is creepy, obsessive, and just plain perverted.

Where are the jobs?  How many more abortion restrictions will you pass instead of supporting President Obama's jobs bills? 

****  Is Republican Josh Mandel, current Ohio Treasurer and candidate for Senate, pushing for certain energy projects to pad his investments?  Plunderbund has more on the investments that Josh Mandel and his wife have in energy concerns, and his association with a right wing, energy "summit" being held.  Plunderbund rightfully questions Mandel's ethics.

Josh Mandel is appearing 7:30 tonight (Tuesday, 7/10) with Republican Sen. Mike Lee at the Sharonville Convention Center, 11355 Chester Rd., Cincinnati. It is free and open to the public. Hint! If the public is allowed to ask questions, someone from the audience should ask Josh Mandel.........

•    Why does Mandel think he should be elected Senator since he has been absent so much from his present job as Treasurer?

•    How many of his hires for the Treasurer's office have ties to his fraternity, high school,  or are related to lobbyists?

•    Does Mandel think that his investments in oil and gas will increase if fracking is increased and the pipeline is built?  How much money could Mandel and his wife gain?

•    Does Mandel think it is fine for American companies to send jobs to China to increase their profits?

•    Josh Mandel is against women's reproductive rights. Does Mandel think that men should not be allowed to get Viagra and other "male enhancements" if their intention is something other than procreation?

After the Supreme Court's upheld the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, Sen. Mike Lee (Utah-R) said, according to CNSNEWS---
“The Supreme Court said it was a tax. I don’t think it was a tax,” Lee told CNSNews.com. “Congress didn’t think it was a tax. The president assured us that it wasn’t a tax. There’s nothing about the text or the structure of the Affordable Care Act that suggests it was a tax. But the Supreme Court concluded that it was.”

Sen. Mike Lee also voted against the renewal of the Violence Against Women Act. (see NY Times on 4/26/12. Lee and Marco Rubio voted against it.).  How interesting.  Why would anyone vote against the renewal of the VAWA? Mike Lee thinks it is unconstitutional--

Does Mike Lee think it is okay to beat your wife, partner, girlfriend?

Mandel’s appearance at the event – given his very large financial investments in those industries – is shady at best, and certainly appears to be unethical.
