From Bad to Worse: The Escalating Republican War on Women

Cutting alimony payments

DeSantis signed a measure that will overhaul the state's alimony laws... The measure (SB 1416) includes doing away with what is known as permanent alimony. DeSantis' approval came a year after he nixed a similar bill that sought to eliminate permanent alimony and set up a formula for alimony amounts based on the length of marriage.

"On behalf of the thousands of women who our group represents, we are very disappointed in the governor's decision to sign the alimony-reform bill. We believe by signing it, he has put older women in a situation which will cause financial devastation. The so-called party of 'family values' has just contributed to erosion of the institution of marriage in Florida," Jan Killilea, a 63-year-old Boca Raton woman who founded the group a decade ago..." - CBS News

Republican war on women escalates

GOP attempt to catch you sleeping

"It is shameful that the $20 million, single-issue August election is taking place. The Republican legislators who put Issue 1 on the ballot know all too well that August elections are wasteful and hit voters while they are not paying attention during the dog days of summer, so turnout is low.

Just months ago, these power-hungry hypocrites voted to limit most August special elections for those very reasons. They were right then, they are wrong now. Ohio voters will be asked to annihilate the simple principle of "one person, one vote" and replace it with minority control when it comes to citizen-led constitutional amendments." - Columbus Dispatch

TakeAway: Pay attention to the escalating Republican War on Women. Make sure to vote in Ohio's Special election.
