|Dave Brat, terrified of women.|
Congressman Dave Brat (R-VA) is a big opponent of the Affordable Care Act, which is why he’s proposed one of the many substandard replacements for what can replace Obamacare when Congress repeals it, as he hopes it does. In the meantime, however, his constituents are rather concerned about losing their coverage, and he’s doing his best to ignore them.
“Since Obamacare and these issues have come up, the women are in my grill no matter where I go,” Brat told a meeting of conservative groups on Saturday. He explained that they’re always pestering him about when his next town hall will be — “and believe me, it’s not to give positive input.”
One of the reasons Brat is avoiding his constituents is because he’s convinced himself that they’re paid activists. “I had one woman on my Facebook say she was going to get up in my grill,” he told the Richmond Times-Dispatch, using the same line as he did at the meeting. “There’s paid protesters…paid activists on the far left, not my Democratic friends I go to church with. They’re being paid to go around and raise havoc.”
Brat didn’t offer any context as to who he thinks is paying these protesters, nor did he seem to acknowledge that they are his actual constituents.
I have to say as a male right now I am in awe of the women in America.
The election of Donald Trump has fired them like I have never seen before, and they have become an almost irresistible force of nature.
I'll tell you one thing, I sure would not want to be standing in their way right now.
And I would not be at all surprised to see a number of women win local and national elections in 2018, and for a female to finally win the White House in 2020.
Damn that would be great, wouldn't it?
