What? What?! The House Republicans really, truly have blocked the reauthorization of VAWA, the bill that, since 1994, has funded programs like domestic violence case managers in police departments and services at battered women's shelters and the like. Their main problem? The Senate's version specified that the women who need protection from violence include women who are immigrants, LGBT or Native American.
The Violence Against Women Act is gone, mamas.
House Republicans are on the side of the batterers and the rapists and the bigots.
