Still think it doesn’t make any difference whether Republicans or Democrats are in charge? Try this one on. For all the disappointments we’ve had with Democrats, can you imagine this one ever passing a democratic body?
Under a GOP-backed bill expected to sail through the House of Representatives, the Internal Revenue Service would be forced to police how Americans have paid for their abortions. To ensure that taxpayers complied with the law, IRS agents would have to investigate whether certain terminated pregnancies were the result of rape or incest. And one tax expert says that the measure could even lead to questions on tax forms: Have you had an abortion? Did you keep your receipt?
Now imagine if the Republicans had the Senate and the Presidency. (Thanks, J-Bro!)
