The GOP war on women continues.
Men are the be all, know all - GOP men are "the deciders".
And by god, if they can’t prove they are god – they will legislate that they are.
Anyhow two men in Iowa are feeling god-like and unfortunately one of them is a Senator.
Think about this (my emphasis):
Many parents allow their anger tostand in the way of the best solution. If you cannot reach a compromise then the child is the one who suffers the most. If you are facing this similar situation going through a divorce with children involved do not allow your anger to stand in the way of good judgment. Here is a fact to remember: 98 percent of all divorces happen because of infidelity. The more anger that results in a divorce, the more difficult it is to be fair.
And think about this:
Divorce statistics show that 72 percent of the time custody is awarded to the wife, nine percent to the husband, and sixteen percent to both parents.
Divorce statistics show that about eighty percent of all marriages end because of “irreconcilable differences” which provides limited insight into the real reasons of divorce.
And then you have this from Iowa as reported on Think Progress today:
During debate over Iowa’s budget, state Sen. Mark Chelgren (R) proposed that people who receive child support payments also be forced to submit to drug tests on the whims of the person making the payments:
The proposal came from Sen. Mark Chelgren, R-Ottumwa who said he was pushing the idea on behalf of an unidentified constituent who believed his ex was using child support money for illegal drugs.
A person paying child support under Chelgren’s proposal could require the recipient to a drug test every six months as long as they pay the costs.
Must be a really good friend of his - or a really big donor to his campaign - or a relative....
One person wants this - so it has to take up time on the floor of the Iowa Senate.
Nothing better to talk about in the Iowa Senate,
than making women pee in a cup - because their ex wants her to.
Would someone tell me how a custodial parent peeing in a cup – helps out the Iowa budget?
