In this disturbing video we’ll see just how insane the TEA/GOP are when it comes to controlling women. Wisconsin Senate President Mike Ellis blew his top, screaming and yelling at Democrats who opposed a bill which forces women to submit to an invasive vaginal ultrasound to ‘educate’ them about the pregnancy. Yes, folks this is the “small government” Tea Party-types for you. This is not about reducing abortions but about controlling women. TEApublican misogyny in full swing. The bill, SB 206, passed 17-15 with all Republicans in support and all Democrats against. SB 206 now heads to the Assembly, which was expected to pass it on Thursday. Gov. Scott Walker said Tuesday he would sign it into law.
Wisconsin State Senator Fred Risser said,
“I’ve been in the Legislature over 50 years, through different majorities and different minorities, and I have never experienced the abuse of power by the majority party that I experienced today.
The arrogance shown by the Republican Majority today is unprecedented. This is supposed to be a democracy. The Senate is supposed to be a place where the elected representatives of the citizens of the state debate issues. Cutting off debate, preventing female Senators from talking about women’s issues, is not how we do things in Wisconsin and I am disgusted.
The Republican Majority is afraid. They were afraid that they would lose some of their own members who were less than enthusiastic about the measure. They were afraid that they were losing the debate publicly so they had to ram the bill though so the public wouldn’t find out what they are really up to and who they are beholden to. They’re afraid of what’s going to happen in the next election and they should be afraid.”
