In their willingness to pander to the most uneducated, stupid and vicious of their few remaining followers:
"LANSING - Today Lansing Republicans held a hearing on House Bills 5684
and 5685 in the Tax Policy Committee, which would give a tax credit for
unborn fetuses past 12 weeks of gestation...Lansing Republicans
eliminated a state tax credit for parents with children last year"
These are not just ideologues or craven liars (they are that, of course,) but truly evil people who will stoop to anything to serve their rich masters and preserve their place of power, no matter how much damage it does to others. The single comfort we can take as we are forced to watch this sickening display is that, if the recent election is any sign, there is no prospect any time soon that they can actually regain power with this strategy. Unfortunately, that does not mean that they cannot do horrible damage to millions before they are finally consigned to the dustbin of history.
