US Senate Candidate 2012 by Samuel Lipari
The Republican Anti Abortion Governor Sam Brownback is fashioning the GOP replacement for Obamacare and GOPCare won't be women's healthcare.
The week leading up to our nation's celebration for Independence Day was a break out session for the Republican Party, the would be architects of America 2.0, the Democracy-Lite 1 operating system where big corporations and government exercise of power is fast and reliable. Op-Ed Times readers don't have to wait for the tentative GOP release date of January 2012 to see the compatibility problems. On July 1, US District Court Judge Carlos Murguia issued an injunction stopping Kansas Governor Sam Brownback' s new abortion clinic regulations, the beta test of women's health features will be like under America 2.0 replacement for Obamacare.
Governor Sam Brownback, the would-be GOP Vice President of Women's Health Programs developer was unphased by the ruling and publicly spoke about the problems created by "the Lost Decade" ( the new GOP code phrase to blame our current president for the Great Recession ) as a reason he will not be able to deliver on his campaign job creation promises.
The citizens of Kansas are largely unfamiliar with the agenda of big business donors including the Koch Brothers the Koch Brothers and Cerner Corporation behind Sam Brownback's gubernatorial campaign. Or how this economic pain blamed on the "Lost Decade" and other people's misconduct is in reality a foreseeable consequence of the profitable plan to complete the vertical integration of one sixth of the nation's economy.
The prior Republican administration that made it possible Big Oil to control the price you pay at the gas pump are now doing the healthcare monopoly. And, they are bringing their anti choice values.
The difference between the GOP and the Tea Party is the debt elected Republicans owe to social conservatives and their single issue motivation to reverse Roe v. Wade.
Despite the resources allocated by the struggling The McClatchy Company (NYSE: MNI - News) The McClatchy Company (NYSE:MNI) and a to the death home office commitment to investigative journalism commitment to investigative journalism , McClatchy's regional papers in Topeka, Kansas City, Independence and Joplin failed to cover the Republican National Committee's role in that other beta test for the new GOP healthcare Insure Missouri and how it and some never released emails led to the surprise withdraw from re-election of the GOP's other bright star Mid Western Governor Matt Blunt abruptly withdrawing from a re-election campaign throwing the Missouri GOP into disarray throwing the Missouri GOP into disarray.
The initial failure of the GOP beta test of Insure Missouri has been partially retooled as the US Congress Republican proposal by Chairman of the House Budget Committee Paul Ryan that even Newt Gingrich called social engineering and then had to clarify. Meanwhile, women's health policy issues are being engineered by Governor Sam Brownback in the reddest of red states, Kansas.
We are now seeing that lack of investigative reporting and one must turn to progressive news sources like OpEdNews.com or Firedoglake.com to understand how the GOP agenda and to be an informed voter for 2012.
Peterr blogged on Fire Dog Lake that the GOP controlled Kansas legislature passed the antiabortion law toughening clinic regulation with an additional language to prohibit insurance companies from including coverage of abortions in their general policies. Where is the mainstream national news media?
Peterr also reports that the Kansas legislature's law stiffening licensing requirements for facilities that provide abortions, includes "a ban on using telemedical systems in conjunction with prescribing RU-486."
The bill depriving of medical technology to women for a legal procedure along with directing the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to write new regulations for exits, lighting, equipment, and operating room were designed to prevent women from exercising a choice.
Governor Sam Brownback signed the bill into law and swiftly attempted to enforce it before two of the three medical facilities providing abortions in Kansas would have a chance to comply.
For readers unfamiliar with Kansas or its court, this is shaping up as another "color of law" scheme using state agencies to prevent citizens from enjoying federal rights.
MSNBC "Hardball's" Chris Matthews was right to compare the new Kansas abortion regulations to the Jim Crow laws of the South. Even the attorney representing the son of then Senator Sam Brownback's only black republican electoral college member James Bolden was disbarred by the Kansas Supreme Court for taking a racial discrimination case against the City of Topeka to federal court.
