This is a long time in coming.

And is desperately needed.

M-man thinks that doing as little as possible stops criminal behavior?

harry knows he could get it through the house if it was about domestic vilence, but the dems have added too much superfluous stuff to it, so the house will reject it. then senate dems can falsely proclaim that repubs are anti-women. Dems are more concerned about playing their political games than they are about helping their constituents and are thereby further endangering women in abusive relationships

Put anything in the bill that fits, then change the title to the "Violence Against Men Act". That will line up the votes of all but a tiny number of GOP House members right there.

Old man,
It’s called the “Violence Against Women Act”

The House would not go along with Senate provisions that single out gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders for protection and give tribal authorities more power to prosecute non-Indians who attack Indian partners on tribal lands.

By loading all that extra junk, the senate is showing they care more about playing politics than reauthorizing the 1994 Act. If they wanted the 1994 Act reauthorized, they would have not added with language they knew the house would reject.

But you knew what I was talking about all along.

Congratulations on not repeating DNC or MSNBC hate speech – first comment I’ve seen from you in a while that has been devoid of it.
