In other news, House Republicans are moving to kill a D.C. law that prohibits workplace discrimination against women who've had abortions or use contraception.

They really, really do not like women who make their own choices. They also love discrimination.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), senior Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, warned this month that Black's resolution "would permit District employers to fire a woman because she had an abortion after being raped, demote a man because his wife chooses to use a birth control pill, pay an employee less because his or her teenage daughter became pregnant out of wedlock, and impose a host of other penalties based on ideologies that discriminate against certain reproductive health decisions."

"Far be it from me to give Republicans political advice, but this is a new low," Cummings said.

The party of small, limited government routinely throws its weight around and tells the citizens of Washington D.C. what they can and cannot do even if they voted it.
