What began as a question on DailyKos, migrated to a thread on Ruth’s Group and is now a piece of draft legislation at mansworldnot. It is a Rovian attack designed to split the Republican Alliance, strengthen Democratic supporters, block attempts to ban abortion, and in general demoralize the rapture right.
It’s time for Dems to co-opt the culture of life and drive a wedge between the rapture right and republican corporations. How? Consider: the only value question dems and reps agee on in polls is the dishonesty of corporate executives. We can take advantage of this by reframing the question of abortion thus:
– the cause of abortion is unwanted pregnancy
– programs that increase unwanted pregnancies must be banned and programs that reduce unwanted pregnancies must be funded
– the best source of funds are repeal of tax cuts for corporations and the impostion of surtaxes on runaway corporations
This reframes the debate and forces Member of Congress to choose between their faithful who want to do anything that will reduce abortions, and their corporate paymasters who want to do anything to not pay their fair share of taxes. Read the bill and send it on
