    The reasons Senate Democrats give for suddenly slammed the brakes on an anti-human trafficking bill this week are numerous, but one thing is clear: for them, it’s definitely been awkward.

    The 68-page anti-human trafficking bill has 13 Democratic cosponsors and was supposed to pass easily Tuesday, but Democrats suddenly reversed course and are now holding the bill hostage over standard language preventing federal funding of abortions, except in cases of rape, incest or life of the mother.

    Democrats claim they didn’t notice the abortion language until this week, and accuse Republicans of “sneaking” it into the bill. Republicans say that’s bogus, and accuse the Democrats of lying about it for political gain. (RELATED: Dems Remember To Read Bill They’re Pushing, Throw A Fit)

    Whatever the case, it’s not a good look for Senate Dems.

    The language of the bill has been publicly available online since it was introduced in January, and the abortion language is on page 4 of the bill. In February, it passed unanimously through the Senate Judiciary Committee after Republicans and Democrats on the committee examined the bill and offered amendments.

    So it’s hard to believe not a single Democrat or any of their staffers read the bill carefully enough to catch the abortion language. And yet, that’s exactly what they claim.

    “Republicans were aghast that Democrats were sticking to their insistence that their aides had not read the bill,” wrote Politico’s Burgess Everett and Seung Min Kim.....

    ....Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell offered to let Democrats offer an amendment stripping the bill of the abortion language, if they stop blocking the bill, but they refused his offer.

    The democrats in the Senate are, by and large, immoral people! One would think that out of 46 there would be at least 6 who would vote to help those in desperate need!

    It appears the democrats are determined to duplicate dingy Harry's record of the last 4 years saying NO! And these people???? with their comrades in the media accuse the Republicans of being the party of NO!

    Crabby where are you? Have you no clever rebuttal to the OP or are you searching the internet for one?

    Frankly I think the democrats are acting just like democrats. They are who they are. They should thank God their mother wasn't like they are. But I doubt most have a speaking acquaintance with God being how much they don't like the unborn child.
