Default Republicans cry foul over death of domestic violence bill

Notice how WaPo headlines the title as if Republicans are whining...the REAL headline should be "THIS Is What A "War on Women" Looks Like"...


Long story short...A Republican state rep female in Virginia introduced a bill that would streamline the way spending for domestic violence gets handed out and increased the spending for it...

Sounds pretty reasonable, right?...And, of course, it is...It had bipartisan support across the board...It was a slam dunk vote to pass...

But then the Republican state rep female in Virginia announced she will seek a national representative seat in Congress...

Democrats don't want her to win (obviously), but to prevent her from using the bipartisan domestic bill she proposed as a reason to vote for her, the Democrats in the state congress quashed it...

Republicans cry foul over death of domestic violence bill

Quote:
Virginia Republicans are charging that Democrats in the Senate have killed a bill addressing domestic violence for partisan reasons.

The bill, HB1, was introduced by Del. Barbara J. Comstock (R-Fairfax) and would increase the amount of money that can go to victims of domestic and sexual violence and funds for combating those crimes, while also launching a subcommittee to study streamlining the funding process for agencies that deal with the issue.

Sen. Janet D. Howell (D-Fairfax) recommended in committee Wednesday that the bill be carried over until 2015, a motion that was approved on a party-line vote.

Howell and Sen. Jill Holtzman Vogel (R-Fauquier) had introduced legislation that was initially identical. But concerns over potential unintended consequences of the bill, which would have created a Sexual and Domestic Violence Subfund overseen by the Workers’ Compensation Commission, led the Senate courts committee to delay the legislation until next year so a task force can work out complications.

Comstock and her co-patron, Del. Christopher Kilian Peace (R-Hanover), said those issues were resolved when the House version of the bill was amended in committee and the subfund was replaced with the subcommittee to study the funding process. The real problem, they alleged, was that Comstock is running for the Northern Virginia congressional seat being vacated by retiring Rep. Frank R. Wolf (R) and Democrats wanted to deprive her of a victory to tout on the campaign trail.

“This issue was not a controversial one until my fellow co-patron announced for Congress,” Peace said
