Alabama Sen. Doug Jones: Pro-Life Legislators ‘Extreme, ‘Callous’

The first-term Senator is displeased that his Republicans are keeping their promise to fight for the unborn.

An Alabama Senator who won his election with the help of a sophisticated online scheme funded by Silicon Valley, and still-unproven allegations of sexual misconduct against his opponent, resorted to name calling after Republican legislators in his state voted to protect the lives of the unborn.

“These Republican legislators, who are overwhelmingly men, are so extreme and so callous that they would overwhelmingly support a bill that denies a woman a Constitutional right that they have had for decades – they would take away that right and make their doctors and healthcare providers criminals,” Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) said.

Tuesday, the Alabama Senate passed a pro-life bill banning abortions outright, ostensibly protecting the lives of all unborn children.

Jones neglected to mention that the Governor of Alabama, Kay Ivey, who is expected to sign the bill into law, is a woman. He went on to bemoan the fact that the bill provides no exceptions in extremely rare cases of rape and incest.

“And to add insult to injury, they stood and applauded the passage of this extreme bill,” Jones whined.

Jones, a Democrat in a deeply red state, has watched his approval rating plummet during his tenure in office.

Big League Politics reported:

U.S. Senator Doug Jones (D-Ala.) eked out a 21,000 vote victory over Judge Roy Moore in a Dec. 2017 special election, but his approval rating has plummeted since assuming office.

“[J]ones’s net approval rating has dropped 17 points since the first quarter of 2018, according to quarterly rankings of U.S. Senators,” said an AL.com report.

The report cited a recent Morning Consult Poll, which places Jones’ approval rating at 40 percent, and disapproval rating at 35 percent. The poll notes that 25 percent have no opinion on Jones.

Arizona’s Paul Gosar Proposes Amending Coronavirus Package to Replace Pork with $10,000 Stimulus Checks

Gosar wants direct aid to the American people.

Published

Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona has proposed that the federal government pay stimulus checks of $10,000 to Americans beleaguered by the coronavirus pandemic, adopting an approach that would prioritize direct payments to individuals over payments to state and local governments. Gosar’s Amendment, offered on Friday night, would also replace payments to extend federal unemployment benefits.

As the American Rescue Plan currently stands, $1,400 stimulus checks to American taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in income in 2018 make up $422 billion- a mere 22% of the total spending in the relief package. Gosar’s proposal would replace much of the questionable spending with direct relief.

If the federal government intends to go ‘all-in’ on deficit spending in response to the coronavirus recession, Gosar’s proposal would ensure that the money is spent directly on the livelihood of American taxpayers. Less than half of the spending of Biden’s stimulus is directly targeted towards taxpayers, with education, energy, transport and state governments receiving almost as much money as the American people under Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan.

Biden’s pork proposal can easily be retooled to prioritize direct spending to Americans, be it in the shape of stimulus checks or buffed unemployment benefits to Americans who have lost their jobs in the recession. Instead, the establishment Democrat has opted to prioritize payments to powerful lobby groups and corporate institutions.

The American Rescue Plan passed the House in a Friday night vote. Should the massive spending package fail to pass the Senate in budget reconciliation, congressional leaders may be left with no choice but to consider proposals such as Gosar that replace federal spending with direct relief to the American people.
