The GOP reaches a new low:  they are frankly honest about their interest in
sticking their noses into the reproductive choices of women, but should
those children be less than physically or mentally perfect?  They don't give
a rat's patootey, particularly when they can make those children the victims
of their inane political revenge.  There *is* a special place in Hades for
these soulless Idaho legislators.

Democrat protests

BOISE - Idaho Republicans took revenge on Democrats for their stall tactics,
killing a bill to help disabled children whose sponsor was a Democrat.

Wednesday's 52-15 vote dumped a measure aimed at helping children with
special needs get access to early intervention services.

It won a 27-8 bipartisan vote in the Senate, where it was sponsored by
Republican Sen. Tim Corder.

But since the House floor sponsor was Democratic Rep. Phylis King,
Republicans voted en masse to dump it.

Republican Rep. Mack Shirley conceded it was retaliation for Democrats'
delays, but said the measure will likely return once this dispute between
the two parties has been resolved.

Shirley and other Republicans said they'd enthusiastically support the bill,
under different circumstances.

King called the vote to dump the measure petty and insensitive.
