Democratic Lt. Gov. Candidate Sanders Wants to Repeal Wisconsin Abortion Ban

Expect to hear this argument over and over as the November 2 election gets closer.  According to Democratic candidate for Lt. Governor, Henry Sanders, Jr. in an op ed, "Wisconsin's legislature must decriminalize reproductive choice because women and their doctors deserve safe, legal healthcare options."   He is, of course talking about repealing Wisconsin's longstanding abortion ban.   This ban will go into effect immediately once Roe v. Wade is overturned and Wisconsin will be one of the first states in the nation to shut down its abortion clinics.   And, the pro-aborts know it.

In their zeal to influence the public to favor repeal of the ban, Sanders and his pro-abortion friends resort to misinformation.   Women will go to jail, they say, when the ban goes into effect.  Rubbish.   The legislature in 1985 changed the law so that there are no penalties for women who have abortions, only for those who perform them.

Sanders is not a household name -- yet.   His abortion position is just another reason to ensure that he does not become one.

Dems Abandon Obamacare "Cost Savings" Rhetoric in New Talking Points

"The law is not perfect, but it does good things and helps many people.  Now we'll work to improve it."  This is the strategy behind a major rhetoric shift on ObamaCare that key White House officials are "selling" to its most important Democratic supporting groups.

No longer will Dems and their groups be encouraged to say that ObamaCare will reduce costs and improve the deficit.  They have finally figured out that the American public is not stupid and doesn't believe ObamaCare will have a positive economic impact on either the cost of our health care system or the ballooning deficit.  So, now they will peddle "improving" the law.

Participants in a conference call were briefed on the new talking points by the Herndon Alliance, an organization which includes many leading labor groups.  "Straightforward 'policy' defenses fail to [move] voters' opinions about the law.  Women in particular are concerned that health care law will mean less provider availability -- scarcity [is] an issue,"  the groups were told.    Translation:  voters have figured out that rationing is inevitable under ObamaCare.

Listeners were given a long list of "Don'ts."   The most telling was the one that said "Don't say the law will reduce costs and deficit."   Thus, President Obama's major selling point of the overhaul of our health care system has bitten the dust.  Another great "HOPE" exposed by reality as a fraud.

State Supreme Court Temporarily Shuts Down Outrageous GAB Rule

It is a roller coaster ride. The State Supreme Court weighed in on free speech issues late last week, issuing a temporary injunction of the GAB rule that would limit the speech of Wisconsin Right to Life and other groups. The vote was 4-3, with Justices Prosser, Roggensack, Ziegler and Gableman voting to enjoin the rule. Now, briefs must be filed later this week before the court makes a final decision.

Briefs are due later this month in the free speech suit filed by Wisconsin Right to Life in federal court.   If the State Supreme Court permanently enjoins the GAB rule, there are other provisions in state law that WRTL is challenging in federal court which will go forward.

In the meantime, leaders in the U.S. Senate say they will try to bring up the federal DISCLOSE Act again which would limit speech about federal candidates. This is the act that gives special privileges to the unions and the NRA but cuts out groups like WRTL. The last time the bill was brought up, there were not enough votes to break a filibuster.   Senator Reid and company think they can garner the votes of Republican Senators Brown, Snowe and Collins.   Senator Mitch McConnell says the Republicans will hold firm and block a vote on DISCLOSE.  Stay tuned.
