CWA on Obamacare: If you like your trans-bashing plan, you can keep it

by Jeremy Hooper

They actually made the video four years ago, but nobody really noticed. So since Obamacare is back in the news and far-right conservatives are determined to be the thorn in the side of people receiving access to affordable health care (as Jesus would), the Concerned Women For America is reverting back to a truly bizarre piece of fear-mongering which suggests that the healthcare law will somehow give "special rights" to L,G,B, and especially T Americans.

This banner, linking to the vid, is currently running on CWA's main site:

Someone spent part of their day recording that. As a job activity. As an adult. And thought it was time well spent, apparently.

If only they'd spent that time forming a case that could win in Supreme Court and/or finding a candidate who could defeat the OBAMA who CARES, then perhaps their current catharses would be more satisfying than whatever this repurposing of a crass campaign of fear is doing for the org.
