Praise for Republicans in Congress

by Steve Ray on February 17, 2009

Not only did they resist the Socialist Agenda of the “Economic Recovery” package signed by President Obama, but they have now written to Cardinal Rigali pledging their defiant support to defeat the legisltative abomination called FOCA — the so-called “Freedom of Choice Act” that would make abortions legal — with no recourse for the States, Catholic hospitals, etc. Voice your support to these courageous Congressional advocates for Life.

US House Republicans write Cardinal Rigali, promise defense of human life
Republican leaders in the US House of Representatives have promised to fight against passage of the Freedom of Choice Act. In an open letter to Cardinal Justin Rigali, the chairman of the US bishops’ pro-life committee, Reps. John Boehner and Thaddeus McCotter — the House Republican leader and chairman of the Republican Conference, respectively — vow that the minority “will not be caught off-guard” by attempts to enact legislation affirming the Roe v. Wade decision. Boehner and McCotter thanked Cardinal Rigali for his clear stance in defense of life, articulating in a February 5 letter to all members of the US Congress. “We stand with you n the defense of all human life,” the Republican leaders said.

Steve, while anyone who defends life, regardless of political affiliation, deserves our support I’m not sure if a little socialism in our country wouldn’t be such a bad thing. Having been the victim of a lay-off I can tell you that European like laws forcing employers to give at least 90-120 days advance notice before reducing their staff are greatly needed here. Furthermore, Reaganite/Thatcherite neo-liberal economics created the climate that led to the current meltdown. The fact is that the private sector cannot be fully entrusted to safeguard our nation’s finiancial well being. Returning to the ideals of John Maynard Keynes, Max Schachtman, or Michael Harrington makes good sense at this point.

All the best!
