If you’re a Joe Biden supporter, when he brushes off an legitimate question, you say (as does Jason Easley) “President Biden isn’t taking any more corporate media Republican talking points disguised as questions.” If you not enthralled by his short temper and refusal to answer reporters’ inquires, you’d be aghast except this is nothing new.
As he departed the White House this morning on his way to Pennsylvania where he will deliver a speech in Pittsburgh and stump for Senate candidate Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, he fielded a couple of questions.
EWTN White House correspondent Owen Jensen asked
“Should there be any restrictions on abortion at all?”
“Yes. There should be,” the president responded.
“What should they be?” Jensen asked.
“It’s Roe v. Wade. Read it, man. You’ll get educated,” Biden snapped back.
What to say? Beside anything about the President’s prickly response?
For starters, as radical as it was, Roe had some guardrails. But when President Biden refers to what he promises he will propose next Congress, he is not talking about Roe. Instead—as are virtually all Democrats running this fall—he means the euphemistic “Women’s Health Protection Act.”
As NRL Political Director Karen Cross wrote
Make no mistake about it: The so-called Women’s Health Protection Act is the most extreme piece of pro-abortion legislation to ever come before the U.S. Congress. And every Democrat running for Senate in a battleground state supports it.
Senators Mark Kelly in Arizona, Michael Bennet in Colorado, Raphael Warnock in Georgia, Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada, Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire, and Patty Murray in Washington, all Democrat incumbents seeking re-election, voted in favor the Women’s Health Protection Act.
