House GOP Blocks Violence Against Women Act. Why???

Leave it to the Republican party to be on the side of violent men who beat up women. 

Oh, but if the bill were about violence against white women, the right-wing party would so be there, maybe.

What a freaking bad party the GOP is! Can't we please let them secede? 

Wish I could say this was unbelievable:

House Republicans insisted the bill is too supportive of immigrants, the LGBT community, and Native Americans -- and they'd rather let the law expire than approve a slightly expanded proposal. Vice President Biden, who helped write the original law, tried to persuade House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to keep the law alive, but the efforts didn't go anywhere.And so, for the first time since 1994, the Violence Against Women Act is no more.
