Program reduces teen birth rates by 40 percent, so Republicans kill it

As one local report noted, “Opponents of the bill worried that increasing access to birth control would not have a net public health gain because it would increase promiscuity.” One GOP lawmaker accused the policy of “subsidizing sex.” Another said of the program, “Does that allow a lot of young women to go out there and look for love in all the wrong places?”
 
The amazing thing to remember here is that Colorado wasn’t talking about experimenting with a new policy measure; state lawmakers were considering whether to keep an existing policy in place. That’s important because, in this case, Colorado already knows the program was working.
 
In other words, Republican critics of the idea raised concerns that the policy might fail – which might be a credible point were it not for the fact that the policy has been in place for five years, offering real-world proof that those concerns are unfounded.
 
I half expected to find quotes from GOP lawmakers saying, “Sure, the idea works in practice, but does it work in theory?”

The NRA is just a bunch of assholes

I feel kind bad for you all that have bought into hating him, and am looking forward to hearing what he has to say when he's out of politics. He's smart, funny and interesting and knows what's important.

If you haven't seen his speech from the correspondents dinner it's well worth the time, he doesn't cat foot around.
