has yet to be affected by the protests. Instead of passing the Jobs Act, the Republicans voted it down and now they are ignoring working on jobs and the economy and instead they are voting on a bill that would allow federally funded hospitals to turn away women seeking abortions…now a few things about that…(1)even though i think this is a big waste of time (Obama said he would veto the bill) the key word in that phrase is allow, which means that the hospitals can actually go through with it if they want to, but have the ability to say no (2)they decide to vote on this?! To bring this up now, when the economy is in the toilet and unemployment is at like 9%?! Brilliant…regardless of how you feel about abortion, this seems like the worst time EVER to bring something like this up.So, what are we going to do about all of this? If the bill passes and goes to Obama, it will die on his desk, but more importantly, what are we going to do if they still refuse to listen to the protesters? Are they going to continue to ignore them-and therefore us? How do we take such a powerful stand that they HAVE to take notice?
Once again, I think it comes down to boycotts…finding the top 20 companies that funded political campaigns from the past few elections and punishing them with a refusal to use their goods or services. A good website to go to in order to find out those companies (on both sides of the aisle) is opensecrets.org but here is the link for the top 140 http://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/list.php
